FAQs

General

How do I book?

Just head over to our booking page. Simply put in your number of players and follow the instructions to book and pay for your event online.

What should I wear?

– We love flip flops as much as the next person (or probably more), but they won’t cut it on our throwing lanes so no open-toed shoes. Pro tip: flat shoes are best for throwing in.
– Stay comfy. Wear whatever you like, but if it restricts your arm movement it’s gonna mess with your aim and we’re not giving you pity points for that. We might give you points for fancy dress though…

Are we allowed to drink alcohol?

Only after your final throw! Axes and booze aren’t good bedfellows. Same goes for drugs.

If you’re not in a fit state to swing an axe, we’re not letting you on the lane or giving you your money back, so don’t turn up drunk.

Is it good for Stag and Hens?

Throwing an axe in a head-to-head game is fun no matter what the occasion. Think bowling or darts, but with a bit more edge. Just make sure you’re all sober when you turn up or we won’t let you play and you won’t get a refund.

Can I get food and drink at the venue?

Yes, the venue has a bar serving non-alcoholic drinks, and alcoholic drinks for after your game. There’s also a food outlet onsite selling ‘Fusion Asian’ food, and loads of great restaurants and bars a short walk away.

Safety

Is it safe?

Axes are only ever thrown down empty, enclosed lanes under the watchful eye of an instructor. As long as you follow the rules and listen to your instructor at all times it is a safe activity.

Can I bring my own axe?

Axes take quite a battering on our lanes so we go with cheap and reliable ones rather than the fine specimens you may have in your collection.
We insist customers use our axes as it means no-one has any extra advantages so the games are all absolutely fair, which is the way we like it.

Can I play if I'm pregnant?

We don’t allow people to play while pregnant (not even a little bit), but you’re more than welcome to come along to spectate.

Booking

What's the maximum number of players?

We can take up to 36 players in one session in London or 48 in Manchester. This means booking out all of our lanes which accommodate 12 players each.

To get a whole lane to yourself you need to book all 12 tickets regardless of the number of players. 1 lane = 12 tickets, 2 lanes = 24 tickets, 3 lanes = 36 tickets.

If you want to book for more than the maximum capacity for a single session drop us a line and we’ll see if we can sort something out.

Can I add another person to my booking later?

Yes, just book another ticket and in the ‘what’s the occasion’ box tell us the booking they’re joining. This only works if there are tickets left!

Can I cancel or change my booking?

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Please make sure you’ve got your ducks vaguely straight-ish before you book as once you’ve bought your tickets we can’t refund or move them to a different date/time.

What if we want to play at a different time to those listed?

We do run private events out of hours for large groups of around 36+. Please contact us at hello@stayontarget.uk

Can we have a lane to ourselves?

Each lane has two targets and takes up to 12 players, so if you want your own lane all you have to do is book 12 tickets. 2 lanes? That’s 24 tickets. And so on…
