PRETTY TOUGH 2020
PRETTY TOUGH - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY A WOMEN'S-ONLY TOURNAMENT?
Many of the sports in the world have a women’s league or division and we don’t see why axe throwing should be any different. The Pretty Tough tournament is our way of showcasing the skills of the amazing women in the axe community and raising money for the American Cancer Society. Which, like a lot of charitable organizations desperately needs funds to continue to fight against cancer.
WHY THE NAME CHANGE?
While we love the name Rack Attack, we have gone with a more general, more encompassing name that is not only more fitting to the women of the sport, but also to whom we are here to support. The women of axe throwing a Pretty Tough, but so are those dealing with cancer, and their amazing support systems! They’re all Pretty Tough!
WHAT ABOUT COVID-19?
Every precaution, and every guideline will be strictly adhered to during the event. We cannot predict the future and where the world will be in December, so we have a backup February 2021 date. We will also not be taking ticket payments until we are sure we can host this amazing event safely.

WHAT ABOUT MINORS?
Our Town has not allowed Minors to throw axes at the Agawam Axe House. We are, however, working with the Town to prove how safe the sport it, how much kids enjoy it, and at the very least hope we can convince them to allow minors in The Pretty Tough Tournament. TBD, basically.
