Ever thrown an axe?

If not, you could try out one of the newest trending sports in North America.

Bad Axe Throwing was founded in 2014 by Mario Zelaya. In three short years, there are now 17 locations across Canada and the United States.

Last year, Bad Axe Throwing opened up a location in Surrey, and it’s part of the chain’s new World Axe Throwing League that starts on Oct. 9-10.

Regional finals will be held at end of November and finals in early December, with a grand prize of $3,500.
