AXE FAQS

When do you open? How do I book?

Hey, hey!  We are currently accepting your court reservations and payment but don't open to the public until December 14 at 4:00pm. 

We are NOW accepting court reservations!  Call 681-205-8344 to book a court. 

Can I bring my own food or alcohol?

Axes and Ales is located inside The Lucky Dill deli which serves food and bottled and draft beer, so outside food and beverage are not permitted.  You can order individual food or party trays from The Lucky Dill ahead of time.  Simply call 1-681-205-8344 to place an order with a minimum of 24 hrs advance notice, letting us know you have booked a court rental and your food will be court-side and ready for you! 

What if I've never done this before?

We love newbies!  We are open to everyone 21 years and older with a variety of skill levels.  While we do not offer personalized instruction, our mandatory Safety Session will give you the basic skills to be safe during court time but also to help ensure you hit the target.  

Can I bring my own axe?

No.  Due to our safety guidelines, we will supply the axes. 

What should I wear?

Close-toed shoes are required and loose fitting clothing is recommended. Loose fitting clothing allows for extending your arm.  

Can I just walk-in and play?

Courts rentals made online with a payment are required.  If you walk-in and want to play, we can book a court and take a payment for you but there is no guarantee that a court will be available. If it is, we can book it for you.  Advanced court rentals are strongly recommended. 


Due to space constraints and safety practices, observing the courts while in session is restricted to The Luck Dill deli area only;  observers may not crowd the court area.
