AXE THROWING | "American Axe Throwing" Invades Louisville

Think of it like playing “giant darts.”

American axe throwing is a sport that is gaining in popularity in some parts of the country. One Louisville business is hoping that is the case in Kentucky.

“Flying Axes” recently opened just east of downtown Louisville. It gives patrons a chance to compete against each other in axe throwing.

Spectrum News’ Andrew Chernoff stopped by the business on Friday to take a closer look at the new business and to learn the best way to throw an axe.

“Flying Axes” is open every day of the week, outside of Monday. To learn more, visit
