The International Axe Throwing Federation (IATF)

Axe throwing is one of the world's most exciting new sports. The IATF was established in 2016 and is a catalyst for the phenomenal growth of the sport worldwide.

Fierce Competition

When we share the same rules, it all comes down to skill. The best throwers compete against the best, elevating the entire sport.

International Standards

A standardized playbook unites all leagues and allows anyone to compete with others, no matter which league you play in or where you live.

Active League Members

Today, the IATF represents over 10,000 league members, men and women, in over 125 cities and 6 countries. Our mandate promotes fair competition, safety, and sportsmanship.
