Summer:  July 4- Aug 22

Fall:  Sept 19 – Nov 7

Winter: Jan 9 – Feb 27

Pricing: $15/player per night, (half the normal rate of non league nights)
Making it $120 per player /$240 per team for the 8 week long season. Also included in the package is an escape 605 axe throwing t-shirt for each team member and a shot at winning the first ever championship escape 605 axe throwing medals!

Rules: league play will last roughly an hour and a half on Thursday nights starting at 7pm. You do NOT have to have any previous axe throwing experience to be a part of this awesome time! each player is welcome to come 15 minutes prior to their scheduled league throwing start time to have a maximum of 10 practice before the match and to utilize one of our axeperts for some free tips and coaching. Axes will be supplied by escape 605! Our axepert will then alert teams when it’s time to start throwing!

Each lane will house two teams that will alternate throws until each person has reached their 10 throws. This will signify the end of match 1 and a brief intermission will be held to tally scores, grab refreshments from the bar, and to switch lanes and targets with the other competitors prior to starting the second match. Match two will follow the same throwing rules as match one. In addition to the friendly completion of teams of two, whichever lane of 4 had the highest point total for the night will also get a free beverage of their choice to follow.

Absent thrower:
In the event something comes up and you are unable to make the scheduled league night, you will be allowed to make up your throws during the practice period of the following league night, this means no warming up so we highly encourage you to get these dates set in stone!
