Atlanta axe-throwers target spot on national stage

It’s a cutting-edge sport that combines mental sharpness, pinpoint accuracy and a consistency that slices away the competition.  And right now, Metro Atlanta’s best axe-throwers are honing all those qualities and more in hopes of competing during a nationally-televised event.

The World Axe Throwing League Championship is set to slice into homes across the country on December 15, streaming live from Chicago on ESPN3 and televised on ESPN2.  The championship will feature 64 of the world’s best axe-throwers competing for the title of 2018 World Axe Throwing League Champion and a grand prize of $5000, and one of those competitors will come from Atlanta’s league, which currently competes at Bad Axe Throwing Atlanta on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken visited Bad Axe Throwing Atlanta back when the location first opened, and couldn’t wait to return to learn more about the local league and the current quest to make it to the World Axe Throwing League Championship.  So he spent the morning there with an axe-throwing coach, getting all the details…not to mention a little free coaching!
