Cornhole Rules

Cornhole Rules

*Rules may be updated at any time

Teams -

 Roster: Everyone participating must be at least 21 years old by the first game of the league.  Teams must have 2 players on the team and no more than 3 players.  All players must sign the waiver before playing. Teams must have at least 1 player at the games each week to be able to play.  Teams are eligible to play with only one team player in both regular season and tournament games.

Substitute Players:  Teams may use substitute players in a given week.  Subs must sign the waiver before playing.  Subs must play during the regular season to be eligible to play in the playoffs.

Game Play

Teams will play a 3 game match during the regular season.  Each game is played until the first team reaches 21 or over.  Teams will play all 3 games regardless of the outcome of the 1st two games.  During playoffs, matches will be the best 2 out of 3 games. Teams will play Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who goes first.  During playoffs, the team with the higher seed will have the option of who goes first to start the game.  In all games, teams will alternate throwing during each round.  The team that scores in the previous round will toss first in the following round.  Following a round where no scoring occurs, the team that started the previous round will start first in the next round.


In each round, only 1 team will score.  The team with the higher points will subtract the team with the lower points for their score in that round (i.e. Team A scores 4pts and Team B scores 2pts.  Team A receives 2pts for that round).  In each round, landing a bag on the board is worth 1pt and getting it in the hole is worth 3pts.  There is no topping bags in the hole (i.e. Team A tosses a bag in the hole and Team B gets one in after that, both bags cancel each other out on pts).
