First Friday THROWTIME at Flying Axes
on the Republic Bank First Friday Hop!
146 N. Clay St.
Louisville, KY 40202
Since the dawn of man, humans have been throwing stuff at other stuff. Why? Because it’s fun. Axe throwing is just taking that to the next level. As an indoor competitive sport, axe throwing has taken off in Canada over the past decade as a private game and even in leagues. Similar to darts, axe throwing is an individual sport played with and against other members of a group. Individuals throw 2 lb. hatchets at wooden targets marked with a bullseye and score points based on where on the target they stick the axe. In the last year axe throwing clubs have been popping up in all the hottest parts of cities like Chicago and Philadelphia, and now Louisville is ready to join the ranks with it's very own, you can even join a league.
