The best axe and knife throwers in the world will compete this Spring in Tulsa, Oklahoma for a piece of the $60,000 prize pool!
We are extremely excited to announce that WAKTC (World Axe and Knife Throwing Championships) will be taking place in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the WeStreet Ice Center on April 18-21, 2024.
“This event will not only be a fantastic way to introduce folks to the brand new WeStreet Ice Center, but a unique opportunity for Tulsa to be in front of global audiences via the ESPN broadcast. We look forward to welcoming international competitors for this action-packed event this spring in partnership with WeStreet Ice Center and Got Wood Axe Throwing.”Joel Koester, Director of Sales for the Tulsa Sports Commission
WeStreet will host 128 Knife throwers, along with 256 Hatchet throwers, 128 Big Axe throwers, and 128 Duals teams, all of whom represent the most elite throwers in the sport from around the world. Over 375 unique throwers are expected to participate in the event.
WeStreet Ice Center is a 140,000-square-foot multi-purpose facility located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Opening in early 2024, it will serve as the practice facility for the Tulsa Oilers hockey team, the ‘AA’ affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks. More than just an ice rink, WeStreet will be home to a full-service restaurant, sports bar, and a virtual reality arcade.
WKTL and WATL are pleased to be working with several local partners as well as Got Wood Axe Throwing to assist in the planning and execution of this event.
“As we move on to the World Knife Throwing League’s 3rd World Championship, it’s amazing to see how quickly this sport has grown. The talented throwers that continue to support this budding sport and community have been astounding and I’m truly looking forward to continuing that trend with the best World Championship yet!”Evan Walters, World KnifeThrowing League Commissioner
