We have an exciting new development for the World Axe Throwing League (WATL). We’ve decided to organize a World Axe Throwing League Council. The WATL council members (WATL Ambassadors) will be assisting the Commissioner as a special review and advisory council for WATL issues and changes. These founding ambassadors and were hand-picked by the President and the Commissioner of WATL to cover the most amount of different experiences as possible to provide a wide variety of insight. They also have shown great merit in the community not just to WATL but to axe throwing overall. We believe that each one of them has shown the qualities that will help progress the sport of axe throwing to the next level.
Without further ado, meet the WATL Council

He has been throwing Axes since 2016 and began to coach Axe Throwing in 2017 after opening his own Axe Throwing Range, Far Shot Recreation. At the end of 2017, Benn helped prepare his competitors for the World Axe Throwing League’s World Championship, where Chris Morning, one of Benn’s top competitors, finished in first place. After the World Championship, Benn has pushed his competitors to perform better and has tried to develop new ways to improve. He has enjoyed watching the sport grow and develop.

He has worked tirelessly to achieve the mission of WATL in growing and strengthening the sport of urban axe throwing internationally by building relationships with all hoping to join the world of axe throwing.
