what is urban axe throwing?

Axecellent question!

What is axe Throwing?

An ancient sport that dates back centuries to Lumberjack competitions. Since then, Urban Axe throwing has become one of the worlds fastest growing sports. The use of a light, user friendly axe and throwing it at your target for points appeals to a lot of people!

I’ve never thrown an axe, can I do it?

Absolutely! We are axeperts at teaching beginners You just need to have the strength to throw an axe (600 grams). The youngest we’ve taught is 12, the oldest was 77!

Is it safe?

Yes! As long as you follow our coaches instructions, you will be perfectly fine. The first thing we cover is safety and make sure that we offer a comfortable environment for everyone.

Frequently axed questions

axtra info

What is included in a session?

All sessions include a safety briefing and introduction. We then show two different types of throws, a few games depending on how many players there are and how they are performing and finish off with some trick shots if there is time. The two hour session is only available for groups bigger than 15 players.



What do I need to bring?

CLOSED TOED SHOES! This is our only requirement. Also a shirt that fits loosely is a good idea as you will be moving your arms a lot. Last but not least, game face!



Can I just come by whenever to throw?

We are only open for service when you have reserved on our website, which you can 

book everyday, 12:00 – 21:00 If you book, we’ll be there!



What’s the best way to get to you?

You can take the 14 tram to Salerstige, from there it’s a two-minute walk. Or you can take the train to Oerlikon train station and it’s a chill 10-minute walk. WE DO NOT HAVE PARKING BECAUSE THIS IS ZÜRICH. We are located on the right side of Schintzlehaus. 


What if I want to book a really big group or outside of your opening hours?

We always try to be as flexible as possible with our customers. If you have a larger group, need an invoice or require more information, please fill out the form below so we have all the information. Special bookings outside of our normal operating hours, please write us on Whatsapp or email us.


Sweet, can we come to throw axes drunk?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! We take safety very seriously at Axtra. If you plan on drinking you can do it after the session. We will not serve anyone who is under the influence or suspected to be or any sort of drug or alcohol. No exceptions.



Who is axe throwing for?

Everyone! You just need to have the strength to throw an axe. We do have one exception to this rule is that our space is not wheelchair accessible. Our next space will be, promise!



Are kids allowed?

As long as they have a guardian present (must be older than 18) and is strong enough to throw the axe its okay. The youngest thrower we’ve trained is 10. She is awesome.



Can I bring my dog?

We love dogs and have them in the space often. However, they must be well behaved. Excessive barking makes it hard to give good instructions. 



Let us know axactly!

Use the form to drop a message. Also, you can call or write us on WhatsApp, to contact us directly and we’ll get back to you!
