2022 World Axe Throwing Championships

August 24th, 2022

WATL’s biggest event of the year is running from December 1-4th.

See the best axe throwers in the world compete for $50,000 in prizes.

The Fox Cities Exhibition Center in Downtown Appleton will host the WATC and WKTC from December 1st to 4th.

The 2022 Championship is a single location with food, entertainment, and festivities all within the conjoined hotel and convention center.

This will be our largest tournament to date and we are excited to announce vendors, local destinations, and points of interest as we get closer to the date. The Championship will have something for everyone, whether throwing or spectating.

We have created a WATC/WKTC portal for all attendees.

This portal is your main point for player updates, pertinent tournament details, and discounted travel booking links for accommodations and flights will be located in this portal.
