Blade and Timber, LLC (“Blade & Timber”) is dedicated to providing a safe and fun sporting environment.
While participating in leagues, any behavior deemed unacceptable by the Blade & Timber staﬀ may result in ejection from a game, suspension from the league, or a ban from the facility and future participation. Individuals ejected, suspended, or banned from participation will not be eligible for refund.
Abuse of any sort will not be tolerated. If a player touches another player, staff member or other guest physically, inappropriately or with intent to harm, they will be immediately ejected from the game, asked to leave the facility, and may be banned from all future participation at Blade & Timber. Local authorities will be called In cases deemed “extreme” by Staff.
Alcohol is not allowed on the throwing lanes. Any participants with alcohol in undesignated areas will be required to leave.
Every participant will be evaluated by a coach prior to throwing (once per session). Blade & Timber reserves the right to deny participation to any guest a throwing coach deems unsafe. Any Guest excluded from participation as a result of this evaluation will receive a full refund of their Participation Fee, unless they have been deemed unfit to throw due to alcohol, drugs, or purposeful unsafe behavior. Guests excluded for those reasons will not receive any refund and may be excluded from all future participation in Blade & Timber activities, including league nights.
Competitions are 2-on-2 and will take place within a Blade & Timber axe throwing lane. Teams will compete in one match per league night. Each match consists of 5 games. A game consists of 10 throws per teammate.
To win a match, a team needs to win 3 out of 5 games. In the event a team wins (or loses) the first 3 games in a match, teams can mutually agree to not play the remaining 2 games. For each team, the scores from their previous 3 games will be averaged and applied to the 2 remaining games.
Ties will be broken by total points. If the total points are also a tie, there will be a single, tie-breaking game.
Blade & Timber will provide all equipment necessary in order to participate in the league. Due to our insurance requirements, guests are not permitted to bring their own axes at this point in time.
Alternates are permitted. Alternates must check-in with the league coordinator, identify themselves, the team and individual they are filling in for, sign a waiver and demonstrate axe safety with an Axe Safety-Certified coach prior to throwing.
If teams absolutely cannot find an alternate prior to their scheduled match, teams may mutually agree to allow a 1-person team. If teams do not mutually agree, Blade & Timber can attempt to find a stand-in, or the team with 1 thrower forfeits the match.
All players will throw from the marked area, 12‐15 feet away from the target within a Blade & Timber axe throwing lane. Players must have their lead foot in the marked area when throwing the axe, though the back foot may be outside the area.
To start, one member of each team will throw to determine the throwing order for Game 1. A member of “Team 1” on the schedule will throw first, followed by a member of “Team 2”. The highest scorer determines who throws first during the first game. If both hit a bullseye, the remaining players throw to determine throwing order. Points accumulated during this round do not count towards any game or match. The team who throws first in Game 1 will throw second in Game 2, and alternate as such for the remaining games.
After determining which team will throw first, each team will decide which player will throw first. This order must stay the same throughout the entire game, but can be changed before each game begins. Players rotate throwing from each team (Player 1 of Team ABC, then Player 1 of Team XYZ throws; Player 2 of ACB, then Player 2 of XYZ) for all 10 rounds of the game.
Points are awarded as follows:
If the axe is on a black line, the player is awarded the points for the higher valued ring. Either blue circle is worth 10 points during the 10th round of the game. The axe must remain in the target for the throw to receive points. If the axe falls out before the axe is retrieved, the throw will be counted as 0 points. On the rare occasion that the axe sticks to the target with the back of the blade, the shaft of the axe or any other part of the axe, the throw still counts and points are awarded accordingly. Axes must make approximately 1 rotation in order for the throw to count.
Blade & Timber reserves the right to cancel a league night due to facility needs or inclement weather. Blade & Timber will reschedule any league night that it cancels to the best of its ability. No refunds will be given if a participant or team is unavailable for a rescheduled league night.
Should inclement weather or other factors interfere with games in progress, one of two things will happen:
If your team is unable to compete, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible to help us schedule an alternate team for your opponent. Your team will record a loss for each game within the scheduled match. Blade & Timber oﬃcials will make every eﬀort to complete a forfeited game with a mixed set of remaining players.
Teams have until 10 minutes past the designated start time to present the minimum player requirement. If both teams agree to play without the minimum or more than maximum required, a Blade & Timber official must be made aware.
The end of session tournament is the 8th and/or final week of the session. Each team is seeded based on their regular session record. Teams with more matches won at the end of the session receive a higher seed than those with fewer wins. Ties will be broken by number of games won and then if necessary, by total points scored throughout the session. The highest seed will play the lowest seed and continue on as follows: 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, 4 vs 5, etc.
These Terms and Conditions govern Blade & Timber’s league night competitions. They are subject to Blade & Timber’s waiver (the “Waiver”) in all respects, and to the extent there is a conflict, the Wavier controls.
