Axe Throwing

Bring out your inner Viking!

The ancient skill of axe throwing

A new activity here at Porthpean for 2024. Our target sports range includes two lanes dedicated to the ancient skill of axe throwing. Growing in popularity, this activity will bring out the Viking or Lumberjack in you!

We include AXE THROWING as part of our archery sessions to give participants an incredible all-round experience. However, axe throwing can be a standalone activity if this suits your group’s requirements.

Our throwing lanes are safe and well managed by our trained Instructing team who will provide an introduction into the art of axe throwing and the basic techniques needed to throw safely. We provide axes that suit the size of our guests making this activity an inclusive and fun part of Porthpean life.

Our team will give hints and tips as well as setting challenges to add an element of fun competition to the activity session.

One of the best things about axe throwing is the support everyone brings, true axe throwers love to show their support for others, cheering every throw and celebrating even the smallest of achievements.
