WATL OFFICIAL RULES & CODE OF CONDUCT

The mission of The World Axe Throwing League is to promote competition through sportsmanship and fair play. Our Axe Throwing rules assure that all leagues and events are played in a sportsmanship-like manner. Although competition may become intense, we expect our participants to maintain a high degree of sportsmanship up to and after the final throw.

 

LEAGUE FAQ

COMMON DEFINITIONS

  • A lane (bay) is a set of two targets used for competition

  • A target is a set of wood with the target circles drawn on it and assigned to a single thrower

  • Sudden Death throws are used in the event of a tie at the end of a single match. Points are not counted or tallied during sudden death.

Target description:

  • A Bullseye is six points and is defined by a filled in red circle surrounded by a black circle in the center of the target.

  • Concentric circles are then surrounding the bullseye worth 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point with lower point values being farther away from the bullseye.

  • A Killshot is worth 8 points, and is the blue circle and able to be called twice during any throws during a single match. It is also used during the Sudden Death round.

WEEKS

In each season there are 7 weeks of regular matches finishing with a tournament in the 8th week. Each week in the league can be played any day you wish, but the week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday.

Week 8 is a playoff to determine the champion in a double elimination bracket.

Leagues must take place during the stated sanctioned season dates, released by WATL. Throughout the season, the scores are uploaded the same week they are finished.

  • Every league week, each player plays 4 matches.

  • League is typically scheduled the same night every week to allow for league players a way to set their personal schedules

  • In the rule book, if three weeks are missed and not made up, the players are not eligible for the playoffs.

LEAGUE YEAR

Each year is broken up into 4 eight week 'seasons' with a break after each.

The seasons:

  • Winter

  • Spring

  • Summer

  • Fall

These seasons coincide with the northern hemisphere seasons.

WEEK 8 PLAYOFFS

  • Overall standings from Week 7, set the seed for the playoffs which are a double bracket elimination Playoff Tournament.

    • It’s best to think of the first 7 weeks as qualifying for the Week 8th Playoff Tournament.

  • Double elimination means that each person has to lose twice. After losing the first game, players drop into the B bracket for final placement.

  • Additionally, the winner of the B bracket goes to the final round with the winner.

From the rule book:

  • The final Championship round is between the winner of the A bracket and the winner of the B bracket consisting of best of 3 matches. Allowing for one practice throw between each match.

  • The Winner: will be the person who wins 2 out of the 3 rounds first.

  • The A winner must lose twice in order for the B winner to win the Championship.

  • This means that if the B winner beats the A winner in a best of 3 matches, they must play another best of 3 matches in order for the B winner to win the Championship
