‘Axe Throwing’ Is This The Hottest Trend In Paris Currently?

by Prince Chandran

Paris is one of those countries which is very famous for their love of art, fashion, good food and fine wine. But in the recent times a new sport is attracting the Parisians which is Axe throwing, you have to pay just 19 euros (22 $) an hour to throw an axe at a target on the wall.

   

 Thomas Morel  30-year-old former financier who saw how much Canadians liked the sport, or game, or pastime, or whatever axe-throwing might be. And he thought Paris is the best place for it.

“And I told myself, this is bound to work in Paris,” Morel said.

So he opened Les Cognees – French for “axes” or “hatchets”, where people can gather after work and throw the axe’s all around.

It might be too dangerous but the neccessary safety measures have been taken, safeguards are in place and the axes are also not sharp at the edges. Important of all this place serves ‘no alcohol’ .

Morel’s venue is located at a traditionally  working class neighborhood showing tentative signs of improving. On a typical day this week, it had attracted about 30 men and women in their mid-20s to mid-30s.

Some had come with friends and some, improbably, were there on corporate outings. For example, 29-year-old Antoine Verdier, a legal manager, and his boss, Camille Cocaud, had come on a team-building exercise.

“It’s a great way to unwind after work,” Cocaud said.

“It’s a real melting pot,You get the young hipsters, you get companies on team-building, but you also get punks, you get mothers with children, you get families” Morel said.

Morel see’s great marketing opportunity ahead, the 2024 Olympic Games are to be held in Paris, and the Paris Government is trying in getting more people to take part in sports.

Morel is a little over ambitious here he says “We want to make axe-throwing an Olympic sport.”
