A company called Civil Axe Throwing is bringing a new “unique sport” to the city.
As its name suggests, Civil Axe offers a safe space for people to come and throw axes for fun or for sport. Here’s what the website says about the activity that is taking the continent “by storm”:
“Whether you want to channel your inner lumberjack or just try out a fun and competitive hobby, axe throwing is a fun and unique sport that’s taking North America by storm. Axe throwing is easy to learn (kinda like throwing darts, but with axes!), and everything is designed with your fun and safety in mind.
Throw an axe. Be awesome. Repeat!”
The company will offer three different options for using the space: group events, eight-week leagues, and one-hour sessions.
Civil Axe currently has locations in Huntsville and Chattanooga, and is in the process of opening in Des Moines and Birmingham.
According to the company's website, the location, as well as the exact opening date for the Memphis space is yet to be determined.
In the meantime, here’s an axe-throwing video from Civil Axe’s Huntsville location.
