How to Host an Axe Throwing Tournament – A Step-by-Step Guide

Looking for a fun and unique way to bring your friends together? Why not host an axe-throwing tournament? It’s an excellent opportunity to have fun and engage in friendly competition. In this blog post, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on hosting an axe-throwing tournament. We will cover the necessary gear, rules and regulations, available games, and tournament setup. Additionally, we will offer some safety tips to ensure everyone enjoys a safe experience. Let’s dive in!

What Equipment Do I Need? 🪓

To get started, you’ll need some basic equipment. First of all, you’ll need to set up the tournament area. You will want enough room for each person in attendance to throw their axes safely without hitting anything or anyone else. Make sure there are no obstacles in the way, such as furniture or decorations, that could interfere with axe throws. Additionally, you should ensure that everyone has access to appropriate safety gear before beginning the tournament; these items can help protect against accidents while throwing axes. At American Paintball Coliseum, we make this easy. We have the space and all the equipment needed to host your very own tournament.

What Games Can Be Played During An Axe Throwing Tournament? 🎯

When planning an axe-throwing tournament, one of the first things you need to do is decide which game format you want to play. You can create an elimination or round-robin format depending on how many players are participating in your event. If you’re hosting a larger event with multiple players at each station or lane, then elimination would be best since it allows all players in each round to compete against each other until only one player remains the victor. However, if you have fewer people competing at each station, then round-robin would work better since it involves rotating between stations so that everyone gets equal playtime without having too much competition happening at once.

Once you’ve decided on your game format, there are several different types of axe-throwing games that can be played during tournaments. Games such as bullseye (where points are awarded based on how close competitors hit their target), head-to-head (where two competitors battle it out by hitting their targets), or speed rounds (where contestants throw multiple axes in rapid succession). Additionally, there are variations of these games, such as double trouble (which is similar to bullseye but requires two axes instead of one) or team play (which pits teams against each other).

Rules and Regulations for Axe Throwing Tournaments ✔️

Depending on which game format you choose, the rules will drastically vary. However, there are some basic rules that apply to every axe throwing game. For instance, your foot may not cross the line. Simple enough. If the axe is in 2 rings simultaneously, then the participant is awarded the points for the value of the ring where greater than 50% of the axe lies. Also, the axe must remain in the target for the throw to count. If it falls out, you get no points. Check out our post on the ultimate list of axe throwing games to further understand the rules. 

Safety Tips For Hosting an Axe Throwing Tournament 🦺

Throwing an axe can be a fun and exciting experience for everyone involved, but it is important to remember that safety should always come first. Hosting an axe throwing tournament is no different! There are several steps you must take to ensure the safety of all participants and the success of your event. Follow this step-by-step guide to hosting a safe and enjoyable axe throwing tournament.

First, establish rules and safety protocols that all participants must follow.

Next, make sure you have secured a suitable facility or area that can host your event. Set up targets and score sheets to record each player’s score during the tournament.
