What Can I Expect

Did you know you can go axe throwing near Calverton in north Nottingham? If you thought chucking hand axes into big chunks of wood was only for lumberjacks, think again. This session, held in the lovely Lime Woods, will teach you how to hold and throw an axe. And once you've done it once, you'll want to do it over and over again!

Back in the day, Native American Indians came up with the Tomahawk, the sort of axe you'll be throwing. It was a heavy hand-held axe that was used both as a weapon and for every day tasks such as chopping, cutting and hunting. Now whilst that all sounds a little bit Captain Caveman, think about the Middle Ages. This is an age when brave warriors were armed with axes as primary weapons in fierce battles. And who knows, axes could very well have been used in this corner of north Nottingham?

The preferred method for lobbing the axes for your typical warrior was an overhand throw of said axe. That makes the axe rotate as it flies through the air, to then land with a thud, head side up, into your target which might just happen to be the skull of your pesky enemy.

Thankfully there's nothing gruesome about today's axe throwing sessions at this centre near Calverton. The team here has sorted some nice tree trunks as targets and the axes used are specifically manufactured to be used in the sport of axe throwing. The method of throwing the axe hasn't changed though!

You will be throwing modern Tomahawk-style axes and you'll need to know how to pick them up and the stance to adopt. You'll learn all about the arm-swinging action to take to send your axe into the air, heading deftly towards the target. You might be a bit nervous about it all at first, but we have to say it's an amazing feeling to lob an swirling axe into the air.

If you thought axes were only used for chopping up firewood and things like that these days, we think you will love discovering the inner warrior in you, as you learn all about axe throwing in north Nottingham. And for even more fun, why not book onto the triple medley to add archery and laser clays into the mix?
