Recreational axe throwing comes to Richfield

Axe throwing has become an extremely popular activity in the past few years, and local owners of MADD Sports Inc. wanted to bring the benefits of this exciting entertainment option to central Utah.

“We wanted to create more opportunities in our area for recreational activities to do, especially for our youth,” said Doug Monroe, co-owner of MADD Sports Inc.

Monroe and Dustin Nielson decided to start the business after experiencing axe throwing firsthand.

“We knew our community needed something like this where they could go out and just have fun,” said Monroe.

Axe throwing is not a new sport, it has been prevalent since the 19th century, however, urban axe throwing has become popular due to its undisputed benefits.

Axe throwing is a great activity for family, friends, and coworkers. It’s a great stress reliever and a can provide a workout too.

It provides an opportunity to work together and develop team-building skills and mostly, it creates friendly competition for those who like a challenge.

“Axe throwing can be a great team-building opportunity and just a good time,” said Nielson. “Our goal is for this to be a fun birthday party, corporate event, or team-building experience for everyone.”

Axe throwing centers offer an excellent opportunity for socializing and building relationships.

“So far we have had young men and women’s groups, birthday parties, and the new Snow College wrestling team come out and enjoy axe throwing,” said Trace Wilson, an employee. “We’ve received great feedback and people really seem to enjoy themselves while playing.”

Many residents already rave about their experiences at MADD Sports Inc.

“It’s a family-friendly environment and is super fun for all ages,” said Britney Obray. “I’d recommend it to anyone to try at least once.”

For some, it’s a different way to get to know someone a little better.

“Axe throwing creates competitive fun for everyone involved,” said Justin Perkins. “It makes for a great date night opportunity as well.”

MADD Sports Inc. welcomes everyone to come and enjoy axe throwing at their facility, located at 2920 S Mulberry Lane in Richfield next to the new Dogberry Collections warehouse.
