ASIA-PACIFIC AXE THROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021 (APATC)
**Postponement to 2022 due to COVID.**
COVID shut down lots of things in 2020, but when it crushed the hopes and dreams of the talented competitive throwers who’ve been absolutely hanging out to compete at the top level, we knew that something had to be done.
Enter, the APATC.
In 2021, MANIAX, Australia’s first and largest Axe Throwing Company, will crown the best of the best. The legend among legends, if you will. The world’s first Asia-Pacific Axe Throwing Champion.
We’re throwing the challenge down to ANY axe thrower, from anywhere in the region. It doesn’t matter where you throw, who you’re affiliated with (IATF or WATL), or if you’re not affiliated at all. Whether you’re a league veteran, you’ve got a target in your backyard or you’ve only ever thrown once before - you’re able to enter! Who knows, there may be an Axe Throwing Champion inside of you, just waiting to steal the limelight from the best of the best League throwers who have been competing for years!

WHAT DO I WIN?!
Well, aside from being crowned the ASIA PACIFIC AXE THROWING CHAMPION (yes we're talking a big-ass Trophy and the street cred to go with it), our Champ will take home a bag jam-packed with prizes.
