It’s Outside the Day-to-Day Norm
The last thing you want from your team building activity is for employees to leave and forget about it. Successful team building is meant to make lasting impressions among your employees. Axe throwing is not only unique, but it will leave your team with stories to retell and reminisce on for months to come. The uniqueness of axe throwing also allows for every teammate to have the same chance of success, because there’s nothing worse than one person dominating an activity that’s meant to inspire collaboration.
It’s a Great Stress Reliever
The combination of exercise, building friendships and the satisfying thud of an axe piercing some wood (and maybe a drink or two) is the perfect environment to relieve workplace stresses. Not only are you easing tensions, but you’re also strengthening the dynamics and bonds of your team.
It Sparks Encouragement
There is no feeling like watching your teammate persevere, adjust their technique, and finally land their first bullseye. This moment is guaranteed to ignite an eruption of cheers and excitement. Though axe throwing allows for some healthy competition, it also rallies your team to encourage each other.
Though axe throwing (and maybe drinking) may seem slightly dangerous, you can sit back and relax knowing that our axe master’s number one priority is your safety. The National Axe Throwing Federation also sets strict guidelines for axe throwing, pit dimensions, and safety parameters, all of which we follow carefully.
At Bars & Recreation, we have two venues for axe throwing. AXE MKE has 12 axe throwing lanes, which can accommodate 6 people each. For bigger teams or those wanting to spread out a bit more, NorthSouth Club in Milwaukee’s Harbor District has 16 lanes. Whichever venue you choose, know that from the moment you inquire about hosting your next event with us, until the last axe is thrown, our team is there to make sure your team is taken care of.
