When people hear axe thrower they tend to think of flannel shirts and beanies, hipsters with man buns and beards and beer. The biggest generalisation about axe throwers that we hear is that all axe throwers are male.
The axe throwing industry is male-dominated but there are kick-ass women who are smashing it in axe throwing. We are also trying to get more women interested in the sport of axe throwing and change the perception of axe throwers to encompass all of the awesome and diverse instructors and customers at Whistle Punks.
We believe that axe throwing should be open to all people, regardless of age, ability, gender or any other dividing factor. And we want all people to feel welcome.
Over the next few months, we are celebrating our female staff with our new campaign #throwlikeagirl.
The campaign will showcase our female instructor’s incredible skills, we will chat with them about what they enjoy about axe throwing and much more. They will be showing that axe throwing is open to all.
