City envy: forget darts, we want an axe-throwing centre like Sydney

Flo Wales Bonner

When the announcement board says there's a six-minute wait for the next tube, when the bloke in front of you at McDonald's gets the last breakfast McMuffin... we all have those moments when all we want to do is throw an axe at something, right? And it's not just us tetchy Londoners: two enterprising Sydneysiders have set up Maniax, an axe-throwing centre where you get to indulge in the sport without ending up on 'Crimewatch'.

The venue is proving hugely popular, with all sorts, from hen-do parties to team-building corporates, flexing their throwing arms.

Should you get really good at hatchet-hurling, you can even join an axe-throwing league for 150 Aussie dollars (about £70) per person. Think the price is steep? It does include insurance - cos, you know. Axes.

We also want a Darth Vader statue like Odessa.

Or for target practice in London, check out new high-spec darts bar Flight Club.
