If you're looking for an adrenaline-filled, pulse-pounding way to have fun all day, grab an axe and get your throw on at Lumber Jill's! Axe throwing is the newest, most popular live entertainment game in the Lowcountry. It's kind of like darts...but with axes! Axe throwing is great for a few hours of amusement, stress relief, team building, and even corporate events in North Charleston, SC. Whether you're looking for a great way to celebrate the weekend or want a new idea for your company event, Lumber Jill's has got you covered.
The Lumber Jill's revolution began after co-owners Jill and Heath spent a date night with friends throwing axes in Charleston. After having so much fun, the entrepreneurial couple quickly realized they could create their own take on axe throwing. Soon after, Lumber Jill's was born!
The name Lumber Jill's isn't just a play on our co-owner's name - it involves a really interesting piece of history too. Across the pond, the Women's Timber Corps "manned" the lumber yards in England while the men were serving in WWII. They affectionately became known as Lumberjills, Britain's answer to Rosie the Riveter. Without these brave ladies, Lumber Jill's wouldn't exist. We would be remiss if we didn't salute them for the example they set!
At the end of the day, we want to provide every one of our guests with an outstanding axe-throwing experience. So, grab your friends, co-workers, family, or favorite people and join us for an axe-throwing party you won't soon forget.
Axes haven't been this popular in America since "The Shining" hit theaters way back in 1980!
In cities all around the nation, axe-throwing facilities are popping up left and right as a fun, healthy way for people of all ages to congregate and enjoy a night of friendly competition and stress relief. In the last few years, the sport of axe throwing has exploded - so much so that the World Axe Throwing League was assembled in 2017 to coordinate international axe-throwing competitions. Since that time, many axe-throwing events have popped up on national TV stations like ESPN.
Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in North Charleston is for stress relief. We've even heard some customers say it's a cheaper form of therapy! In reality, axe tossing gives you a therapeutic release that is hard to replicate. A few hard throws with an axe and your body releases a flood of endorphins, which help increase your energy, improve your mood, and facilitate healthy blood flow. If you have pent-up anger, nothing feels better than chucking a heavy axe at a target. Hitting a bullseye is even better!
Since axe throwing is such an exhilarating activity, many people don't realize that they are exercising their arms, legs, abs, pecs, and even back when they come to Lumber Jill's. Like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, axe throwing works several muscle groups at once. These exercises strengthen your core and help define your muscles. When coupled with a healthy diet, regular axe-throwing activities can even help you shed a few pounds.
You might be surprised to hear that axe throwing is one of the most sought-after company event ideas in North Charleston, SC. Sure, your colleagues might think it's a little weird to host a corporate meeting at an axe-throwing facility. But once your co-worker hits their target, they'll quickly understand how much fun they can have. Perhaps more importantly, axe tossing is a safe, fun way to conduct trust exercises and build team morale overall.
When you get right down to it, axe throwing is good, clean, healthy fun. Axe throwing helps relieve shoulder tension, while laughing helps engage your body's core. When you throw in an adult beverage or two, laughs become easier and fun flows more freely. You can't help but have the time of your life at Lumber Jill's in the Lowcountry.
Axe throwing isn't reserved only for adults - kids can get in on the fun and excitement too. Our warm, inviting atmosphere inspires people to embrace their inner champion, even if they're under 18. At Lumber Jill's, we can accommodate kids ages 10 and up. Before we pass them an axe, we will evaluate their skill level to ensure their safety. Contact us today for more info on birthday celebrations and whole facility rentals.
Status quote, average, ordinary...these are qualities that no employer would want out of their employees. So, why host a team-building event at a venue with the same characteristics?
If you're on the hunt for corporate event venues in North Charleston, SC, you just hit the jackpot. We may be a little biased, but Lumber Jill's is a fantastic corporate event venue for companies looking to try something new.
Axe throwing for corporate events is fun, high-energy, and safe for all your employees. We're talking an adrenaline-filled day with your own private axe-throwing lanes. Get your clients or your team out of the office and give them something to be excited about!
In addition to our standard reservations, we are happy to offer celebration, corporate, and full facility rental packages. Planning a surprise birthday party for your best friend? Celebrating a life event with that special someone? Looking for a spot for your family reunion? Axe throwing in North Charleston, SC is the perfect activity for your group! For the most memorable (or hazy) celebration, don't forget to ask us about alcoholic beverage service and additional lane time.
Please note that our celebration package is designed for customers over the age of 12. Two adults must be present at all times.
We understand that axe throwing isn't your typical date night or even guy's night activity. We get it - you're hurling real axes at a target that is only a few feet away. On the surface, that can sound a little scary. But don't worry, many of our first-time guests have questions about how our process works too.
One of the best parts of owning Lumber Jill's is our ability to give back to our local community. We are always on the hunt for new, inventive ways to serve our citizens. That's why, once a month, we host Axe of Kindness night to shine a light on an important organization, charity, or good cause. These exciting events give our customers a compelling way to make a real difference in someone's life.

The North Charleston all-stars were unable to get past the team out of Southland, Louisiana during the 2022 Dixie Baseball Pre-Majors (15-16) World Series.
After claiming the South Carolina state championship, North Charleston traveled to Sterlington, Louisiana for the world series July 22-25. North Charleston went 3-2 in the tournament, falling twice to eventual tournament champion Southland.
North Charleston, a team comprised of players from across the Lowcountry, had some momentum entering the third day having already defeated the state champions from Mississippi and Texas. However, Southland edged out North Charleston 6-5 on July 24.
Griffin Chilcote had the start on the mound but RJ Hamilton and Jackson Brown did most of the pitching for North Charleston. The two relievers combined to strike out six batters while walking four, but their efforts weren’t enough to keep the Southland offense at bay.
North Charleston scored three runs in the first inning on four Southland errors and a double by Matthew Knobe. Cam Avery drove in one of the other runs.
DJ Drayton had a triple in the second and scored off a single by Jackson Christopher. North Charleston added one more run the next inning as Brown led off with a double and scored off a single from Donovan Johnson to put North Charleston ahead 5-2. However, the Southland batters found their grove during the later innings.
The next day, North Charleston defeated the Florida state champion 5-4.
Avery pitched the first two and one-third innings. Jackson Brindle relieved him and closed the game. Brindle surrendered only two hits and one run while walking no batters in route to picking up the pitching win.
Brindle reached on a walk in the first inning and moved to third on a passed ball and a sacrifice fly from Drew Moore. Brindle then scored on another passed ball to leave Florida with a 3-1 lead entering the second.
North Charleston pulled ahead 4-3 in the third. Avery pushed two runs across with a triple to right field that scored Brindle and Moore. Avery then came home on a balk.
Florida tied the game in the fifth.
North Charleston put a runner on third base the next inning with a bunt single by Johnson, sacrifice bunt by Christopher and sacrifice hit by Drayton, but failed to push the run across.
The bottom of the seventh inning began with a pop fly that was secured by the shortstop. Avery then hit a double to left field. Brown followed with a walkoff single that scored Avery for the 5-4 victory.
The win left North Charleston only a win away from the finals, but it would have to avenge its prior loss in order to get there. The next day North Charleston was eliminated with a 9-2 loss to Southland, which went on to defeat Sterlington to clinch the championship.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - More than 800 people have signed a petition to save a running track that is likely to be eliminated because of new editions at a North Charleston facility.
Improvements coming to the Danny Jones Athletic Facility will include a new aquatics center and a gymnasium. But with the new additions, City of North Charleston spokesperson Ryan Johnson said the footprint of the building will increase, leading to space constraints on the site, which will eliminate the track itself.
Johnson said the football field currently at the site will remain.
An area running club, the Park Circle Pacers, has 300 members, including 100 active members. They practice at the Danny Jones track regularly for their Tuesday evening workouts. Members of the group say that losing the track would be a huge loss for not only them, but for the whole community.
A walking and biking trail will surround the site, but members say that’s not enough.
Member Erin Atkinson said the track provides safety features that you can’t get while running on the street or sidewalks.
“The hazards that I see every day, between sidewalks not being cleared, having debris or trash there, motorists not paying attention, or sometimes being hostile towards runners or walkers,” Atkinson said. “Having an area like this where you can just focus on your workout and getting in some fitness without having to worry about your safety is key.”
Brian Johnson is a cross country and track and field coach at Academic Magnet. To Johnson, losing the track would make it harder for his team to get to a facility to practice since the track is close to their school now.
“So many times, you have teenagers traveling to go practice somewhere,” Johnson said. “That adds a liability.”
Michelle Huntley isn’t part of the running group but lives a half mile away in Park Circle. She said when she walks or drives by the track, she sees people utilizing it morning, noon, and night.
“You just don’t see that with other recreation facilities, something that’s used so frequently,” Huntley said.
The city said the projected completion time for the project is late 2023.
“To lose this track would be a travesty,” said Lionel Adams, at-large director for the Road Runners Club of America. “We just can’t see this empowering everyone to run if this is missing.”
Members say they plan on speaking at the next North Charleston City Council meeting.

NORTH CHARLESTON — A new barbecue restaurant is coming to the city’s southern end, but that doesn’t begin to describe what you’ll soon find at 2029 Carver Ave., steps away from Reynolds Avenue.
Char siu (Cantonese barbecue pork), Chinese sausage, roasted duck and fried cabbage are some of the dishes Shuai and Corrie Wang of Jackrabbit Filly will serve inside King BBQ, set to open in early 2023.
Since turning their popular Short Grain food truck and pop-up into a brick-and-mortar restaurant in 2019, the Wangs have made Jackrabbit Filly a place that feels cozy and comfortable, yet dynamic and full of surprises. The restaurant seamlessly blends Chinese and American cuisine in a casual and lively setting, with dishes like karaage, dumplings, fish tartare and drunken egg noodles in ginger tomato sauce among the local favorites.
King BBQ will be different, with a menu unlike other barbecue restaurants in the Lowcountry. The restaurant’s name comes from the couple’s surname, which translates to King in Chinese. When written in Chinese, Wang is said to resemble the forehead of a tiger.
“The concept is more Chinese-style barbecue with a heavy influence of North Carolina, so mustard and vinegar ’cue,” Shuai Wang said.
That means roasted and smoked meats paired with sides that riff on classics; German potato salad and North Carolina red slaw, for instance. Diners will be invited to order at the counter and settle at a table inside the 3,000-square-foot space or outside on a covered patio, perhaps with one of several dive bar-inspired cocktails.
Shuai Wang called Kings BBQ a “Buffalo Bills bar,” so in addition to Chinese barbecue, expect the Labatt Blues to be flowing.
The restaurant is housed in a building that was once separated into two units, 2027 and 2029 Carver Ave. It previously housed several businesses, including The News & Courier’s North Area Branch Office in the 1950s.
You might recognize the building’s owner, Ed Sutton, one of nine potential running mates floated by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Joe Cunningham on July 18. Sutton owns several buildings in the Reynolds Avenue corridor, a part of North Charleston that has seen an influx of development in recent years.
“We’re kind of seeing a resurgence of interest in the area,” Sutton said. “It’s been really interesting to see this transition and renewed interest.”
Sutton will soon redevelop the 3324 Rivers Ave. space previously occupied by Gold Mine Pawn Shop, a 9,000-square-foot project he said could include a restaurant. For now, his focus is on King BBQ, a “total overhaul” that will be designed by the Wangs.
“I love the neighborhood,” Corrie Wang said, describing King BBQ’s setting. “I just think that we’re opening a friendly place that’s going to make everybody happy.”
Current Jackrabbit Filly chef Brandon Olson will lead the King BBQ kitchen as chef de cuisine. The promotion is an example of the Wangs giving employees opportunities for growth — a Jackrabbit Filly server will take on King BBQ’s general manager role, while a bartender will be promoted to bar manager.
Ahead of King BBQ’s opening, the Wangs will harken back to their Short Grain days by popping up at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (or sold out). The first pop-up will take place Aug. 23.
If it’s anything like those Short Grain events, we recommend visiting early and often.

SHL Medical, a world-leading provider of drug delivery solutions, plans to establish operations in North Charleston, South Carolina. The $90 million project is expected to create roughly 165 jobs.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $250,000 Set-Aside grant to Charleston County to assist with costs related to the project.
“We are excited to see South Carolina’s life sciences industry continue to expand as we add SHL Medical to the list of companies operating within our state. More and more international medical companies are deciding to locate in South Carolina because of our business-friendly environment and talented workforce.

The company uses technology to create autoinjectors, pen injectors and innovative specialty delivery solutions that allow patients to self-inject at home. SHL also offers contract manufacturing and engineering services for products such as wafer testing equipment, laboratory handling equipment, neurosurgical devices and industrial equipment.
“We applaud SHL Medical for choosing the Charleston region to expand its U.S. operations. SHL Medical will bring the innovation and sustainability to Charleston County that they are known for internationally, as well as highly skilled jobs, further advancing our competitiveness in life sciences,” Charleston Regional Development Alliance Board Chairman Mike Fuller noted.
