We believe that having fun and being with family and friends is a healthy and important part of life.  Furthermore, we also believe that an experience with close friends while engaging in an active sport is good for your mental status and inner well-being.

The Agawam Axe House was created to bring people together, while introducing an entirely unique sport to New England.  Axe throwing is a safe sport enjoyed worldwide and even closer to home, throughout Canada and the United States, but has not yet come to New England….not until now!

We believe that everyone has that primal urge for throwing things, looking to do something new, exciting, and challenging.  Whether you are looking to try a new sport in 2018, want to create a greater sense of focus, blow off some steam after a long day of work, want to hang out with some good friends, are looking  to meet new people, or simply want to have a great time, we want you at the Axe House.

Our objective is for you to have a great experience and we will not stop until you do.  At first, it may take a little practice to stick the axe, however once you get the hang of it, you will be satisfied with every wood-splitting stick

The Agawam Axe House is all about our guests and their desire to have a great time.

Combined with the lowest zip code in the United States, Agawam, Massachusetts now has the first Axe House in New England.  Be part of the First and Original!

– Lets’ get to the Axe House –

The minimum age for Axe Throwing at the Agawam Axe House is 18. Yes, our Policy has changed since we originally opened. We wanted to show consideration for those who have fears about minors in that atmosphere. While we would have loved to allow minors, it’s just not the right move, right now. We apologize to anyone who planned on bringing their minor(s). For those who were lucky enough to throw, well, you’ll be immortalized as the only minors allowed at the Agawam Axe House.

We have a minimum 2 guest per lane policy. If you don’t have a buddy, you can come along and just pay the $50 for the lane rental. Our lanes are never shared (except on private event nights).

All throwing takes place under direct supervision of our experienced coaches, and we have dozens of protective measures in place, such as chain link fencing and a separated spectator area for guests who aren’t throwing.

Our coaches may have to throw your axe/hatchet in order to determine if it is safe for our facility. We do not allow axes which cause too much damage to our targets. Guests who bring their own axes must understand that Agawam Axe House is not responsible for any damage to personal property.
