Winter in Nashville is pretty mild for someone used to Northeast winters, but the nights still go below freezing and it can be a real downer if you’ve got a winter birthday. You’re stuck to indoor activities and everyone feels like staying comfortable indoors. Just getting people to show up can be a struggle, and you’ve probably had your fair share of winter birthdays hunkered down in your favorite bar. If you’ve done the same old routine one too many times and you want to change it up without struggling to get people out of their homes for your winter birthday, you will be happy to hear that Nashville is now home to a new axe throwing league, and they do private parties.
Anyone who is looking for a fun birthday party idea should look no further than an axe throwing party in Nashville. Urban axe throwing has been spreading across North America for only about a decade now, and its growth has created a whole culture around axe throwing. But you don’t need to join a league to join in on the fun when you can book a private party for birthdays, bachelorettes, and corporate team building events alike. You and your group get the pitch to yourselves at leagues like the Backyard Axe Throwing League, more commonly known as BATL, as well as private training from professional axe throwing instructors. Under their instruction, you’ll pick the fundamentals of axe throwing in no time.
Once you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to head straight into the fun, starting with a round robin tournament that makes sure everyone gets to play, followed by a “play off” elimination round that will awaken the competitive spirits in everyone. The venue used by BATL, in conjunction with Throw Nashville, is a small, 6 pitch venue that can accommodate groups of anywhere from 6 to 40 people. Just a few blocks from Nissan Stadium, it’s also a quick cab ride downtown so you can top it off with drinks.
Axe throwing is a blast and it promises to be a birthday no one will forget any time soon. You may think you know Nashville inside and out, but with the addition of axe throwing, there’s one more great birthday party idea that you have to try. When you go axe throwing at BATL, you’re going to walk out feeling like a pro, thanks to their one-on-one instruction.
There’s a lot to be said about winter axe throwing on your birthday, but the best part might just be that it’s come-as-you-are – plaid is the internationally recognized uniform of the axe thrower, and not only do you get to skip the heels, they aren’t even allowed. You need solid footwear to throw axes, and it’s a great excuse to hold a dressed down birthday party. Go axe throwing for your winter birthday and guarantee your friends a good time, whatever the weather is like outside.
