Iron Axe Society

"As Concord, NC’s first indoor urban axe-throwing facility, our mission is to create a fun, exciting, and unique experience for our growing community"

What is Axe Throwing?

Urban Axe throwing is a fun combination of darts and bowling, only way cooler and more modern.  Participants safely throw a small hatchet at a fixed target to score points. Targets are set up like traditional bullseye’s so the closer you get to the center, the more points you earn. At the end of the game you tally up the points to see who in your group is taking home the title of “Iron Axe Society Champion”.  BOOM… Great time had by all!

It's Fun and Easy

Easy like Sunday morning, don't overthink it! Simply grab the axe, give it a toss, and let force meet resistance. Your first time sticking will be so much fun and a feeling like no other.

Teams are Welcome

Have a large group in need of tons of fun? Here's an idea... Forget bowling, challenge your friends, family, co-workers to a day or night of exciting competition.

How Hard is it to Throw an Axe?

Not hard at all…. In fact, it is very easy. Worried about it being your first time throwing? Don’t be, we love introducing this growing sport to new throwers. There is nothing like the awesome feeling of that first stick! This sport is so much fun and will hook you in like nothing you can imagine.

Our venue is dedicated to axe throwing.

We provide a safe location for you to hurl a 2-pound metal object at a block of wood. Day and night, we offer coaching for anyone who would like to improve their game, or introduction and instruction to inexperienced throwers. We are happy to host private and corporate events with advanced notice. Book your event by contacting us today!

We welcome axe throwers of all experience levels.

New Throwers

Your group will be assigned a coach to provide you with a safety briefing and demonstration of the two primary throws – Double-Hand Overhead and Single-Hand. Your coach will fully explain each of these and provide a demonstration. Finally, your coach will work with you to make sure you hit the target and get that all important first stick!

Experienced Throwers

Want to improve your accuracy or explore different throws? We got you covered! Our coaches will observe your form and offer a few tips and tricks we have picked up during our countless hours of throwing. And we are not opposed to learning. Maybe you can teach us something new that we can pass on while of course giving you credit.

Please contact us for booking reservations of large groups.

Absolutely! However, if we’re busy, you’ll be asked to team up with another single player.

We allow cancelations up to 24 hrs before your scheduled session and will return your deposit. We understand things happen so give us a call if you have to cancel and we’ll work with you the best we can.

To optimize your throwing time, we ask that guests check in 15 minutes ahead of their reservation to complete our instructor led training course.  In the event that you’re running a little late, we’ll hold your reservation for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes your reservation will be cancelled, without refund. 

We sure do, and we’re happy to squeeze you in if there’s an open lane! But just to be safe, we strongly recommend you book ahead of time to secure your lane. 

We provide participants with everything they need, but if you have your own, bring it on in! All axes not provided by Iron Axe Society will have to be inspected by our staff to ensure they meet our safety criteria. 

Yep, we serve beer and wine! We know what you’re thinking… Beer + Axes?! But don’t worry, we have you covered. All participants 21yrs+ that want to drink alcohol while throwing are limited to 3 drinks. We’ll give you a sweet wrist band that our bartender stamps every time you order a drink. After your session is over feel free to remove your wrist band and grab a drink at the bar.  Once the wrist band is removed you will not be allowed to throw. 

We have prepackaged snacks available for purchase.
