Overview

We think Whistle Punks Urban Axe Throwing is the most satisfying and social day or night out you’ll ever have. And we’ve tried a few. You’ll be slinging axes side by side against your friends or colleagues, hitting bulls-eyes and cheering on your mates. All backed up with great music and atmosphere and a chance to socialise between throws. Our experienced throwing coaches will get your throwing like a pro in no time. Then once you’ve got the hang of it we’ll take you and your group through a tournament until the king or queen of axes is crowned.
