The National Axe Throwing Federation (NATF) and member, Urban Axes was featured in the NBC News Better article by Amanda Loudin on 1 September.
Loudin highlights the history of axe throwing in Canada and the NATF by stating:
"Axe throwing as a sport isn’t new, and in fact might be one of the oldest in existence. What is new, however, is throwing axes in an urban environment, especially in the United States... In Canada and a few other spots in the world, urban axe throwing is booming and according to the National Axe Federation (NATF), participants have thrown nearly 20 million axes to date."
They also discuss the success how Urban Axes was established in Philadelphia, PA. Krista Paton, the owner of Urban Axes was working in "...Toronto in 2013, she attended a party at a local axe throwing facility. “I had an amazing time, felt like I was good enough to compete, and thought that people in the United States needed to experience this,” says Paton.
