This is a social cornhole league, but we still have a few
"rules". Just remember that everyone is out there to have fun!
Basic League Rules:
How many people on a team? A minimum of 2 players per team
must be present to play each week. We recommend signing up a team with 3-5
players per team to make sure enough people show up each week. Please you can
always sub people in each night too! Substitutions can happen after
a frame. If a player arrives during play, they may only join their team
after a frame.
How long is a game? A regulation game lasts
45 minutes from the designated start time or until one team reaches 21 points
in each game. You do not need to hit 21 exactly and can go over 21. We will
play best out of three games against your scheduled opponent each night.
If a team is winning 13-0, it is considered a skunk and that game is considered
How do I know when I play? The schedule for each week is
posted on the schedule page at
What happens if the other team doesn't show up? A team has 15 minutes
past the designated start time to show up. If they do show up late, but
within the allotted 15 minutes, your teams will not receive extra time to play
and you must complete your game in the remaining time. If they do not show up,
the result is a forfeit. The team that shows up will win with a score of
21-0 two out of three times. If a team "no-shows" twice in one
season, they will forfeit their registration and forfeit the rest of the
What area can I stand in? You can be anywhere to
the left or right of the board, as long as you stay on that side for the entire
match. You can stand all the way up to the front of the board. Team mates will
stand on opposite ends and on the same side.
How does cornhole
The object is to be the first team to reach 21 points by either
trowing the bag onto the board (1 point) or in the hole (3 points). Board will
be placed approximately 27 feet (front to front) from each other. This distance
is placed out by the league manager. Cornhole boards and bags will be provided.
Each court consists of 2 boards and 8 bags.
How to play: Begin the game with a
coin flip or play rock, paper, scissors between the two captains. The winner
determines the end from which play will start and gets the first throw. In the
playoffs, the higher seeded team has those privileges. Players may not cross the
foul line, which is located at the front of the board. All players must throw
from behind this line.
Scoring: A game consists of
frames. Each team rotates throws their bags until all bags are thrown to the
other side, at which point, the frame is complete. Each frame consists of
calculating the difference of all the bags on the boards and in the hole at the
end of the frame per team. The net points is kept track of from each frame.
Example: Team A scores 8 points in frame 1 and Team B scores 2 points in frame
1. THis would mean that Team A would receive 6 points for that frame and would
also be the team to throw first in the next frame.
What happens if a bag is
knocked off the board?
It is fair game and points are added up at the
end of the frame.
Violations that can result in a
bag being removed from the board/hole:
1)If a player crosess the foul line
before the bag is released. 2)If a bag hits the ground before getting to the
board. 3)If a bag strikes an object such as a tree limb, indoor ceiling, etc.
What is there is a scoring
All questions and issues will be handled by the league manager.
The league manager will make the final ruling on all protests. Please remember,
we are all out here to have fun! At the end of the day, it is just cornhole
Rankings: These are calculated on the total overall match wins,
followed by game win differentials. A win is given 1 point and a loss is given
0 points. So the winner each night will always get 2 points total. The loser
will either have 0 points or 1 point.
Have Fun! Like all recreational sports, everyone in the league
comes out for a good time, so please exercise good sportsmanship.
