Want to Throw Axes Competitively?
No Axe Throwing experience necessary! We will teach you!

What do I wear to League?
MANIAX general dress code states that you can wear whatever you’d like, as long as it’s accompanied by enclosed shoes.
In the final week of each season (know as playoffs), members of each venue wear a flannelette shirt in their designated state league colour.
MANIAX also offers a newly designed League T-Shirt. Displaying an iconic Sindy Sinn design coloured for each individual state, these shirts (or singlets, if preferred) are available for purchase at the start of each league season (by order only)
Sydney – Red
Melbourne – Black/Grey
Brisbane – Blue
Perth – Purple
Adelaide – Green
Do I have to have my own Axe?
No, not straight away. There are a small number of timber hatchets purchased by MANIAX, available for communal use at each venue. Once you have figured out which type of axe you want to compete with, you can purchase your very own NATF compliant timber handled throwing axe.
Can I try before I buy?
Yes! MANIAX welcomes spectators that are wanting to sign up to League to come along and check out what we’re all about on one of our League nights! Our MANIAX League members love to share their passion for Axe Throwing.
Get your EXCLUSIVE Maniax League Gear!
League members have the option to purchase an exclusive, one of a kind League T-shirt designed by Sindy Sinn in their Venue colour (Sydney is Red, Melbourne is Grey, Brisbane is Blue, Perth is Purple and Adelaide is Green).
During play-offs all members don their colours with pride in the form of League shirts or flannels as they battle it out for a chance to be the Top Axe Thrower of their state.
Social aspects to MANIAX League
Aside from the chance to compete at different levels and progress beyond your local Axe Throwing League, MANIAX League also has an axe-cellent social side. Many of our League members have formed life-long friendships as it encourages you to connect with people in a different way. There's nothing like celebrating your first CLUTCH or "81" and there's no one like MANIAX League members who can relate to that feeling!
All MANIAX Leagues hold theme nights throughout the season which is bundles of fun!! We have seen some cracking themes such as Vikings, Pirates and even the beautiful combination of ‘Gothics and Hawaiian Tropics’.
