Urban Axes: Boston
Located in Somerville Massachusetts’ Union Square, Urban Axes Boston has four throwing arenas with 15 lanes that can accommodate up to 100 people at a time. With a bar on site and areas for competition, office functions, seating, and retail, the building provides gracious accommodation for this individual sport played in a group setting. Similar to darts, axe throwing is an individual sport played with and against other members of a group. Individuals throw 1.5 lb. hatchets at wooden targets marked with a bullseye and score points based on where on the target they stick the axe. Curiously, it isn’t a game of strength, rather the most successful players hone their technique and skill and let the axe do most of the work.
