    Euro axe-throwing grand slam comes to Aycliffe

    A European axe-throwing event will be held in Newton Aycliffe this week for the first time.

    Aycliffe-based Valhalla North Axe Throwing are hosting the first annual UK Open IATF Grand Slam Tournament on Friday and Saturday (August 18 and 19).

    It will be the first tournament of its kind in Europe, and will see people coming from across Europe, the US and Canada to compete at Valhalla North’s premises on Aycliffe Business Park.

    The International Axe Throwing Federation (IATF) have awarded this tournament Grand Slam status, making Valhalla one of only six venues in the world hosting the highest tier of tournament other than the International Championships in Toronto.
