Tournament Structure and Rules

Four or five teams (depending on total number of teams in the tournament) will be randomly assigned to each set of cornhole boards and play games in a Round Robin format. The 16 teams with the top cumulative scores from the Round Robin will advance in the tournament. Games will then be played Single Elimination until we can crown the winners! Each game will have a 30 minute time limit.

Tournament Rules

  1. Team must have both team members present in order to play.
  2. Boards are placed 27 feet apart (front edge to front edge).
  3. Team members stand at opposite cornhole boards.
  4. Each team plays 4 bags of one color per round.
  5. Coin flip will determine who throws the first bag.
  6. Game continues by alternating throws between the two teams until all bags have been thrown for that round.
  7. The most recent team to score begins the next round.
  8. The bags may be thrown from anywhere behind the front of the cornhole board.

Scoring

  1. All games are played up to 21 points using “cancelation scoring”
  2. Teams do not need to score exactly 21 points to win.
  3. Points are scored as follows:
    • 3 points for a bag that goes through the hole
    • 1 point for a bag on the cornhole board
    • 1 point for a bag hanging off the board but not touching the ground
    • 0 points for a bag touching the ground or touching another bag that is touching the ground
  4. A bag that touches the ground before landing on the board scores 0 points and is removed from the board.
  5. The cumulative score for each team during the Round Robin will determine who advances to the Playoffs. 
  6. The team that wins the round begins by throwing first in the next round.  If neither team scores, the team that pitched first in the preceding round shall throw again.
  7. Forfeited bag results from throwing out of turn or throwing from in front of the board
  8. Any disagreements will result in a redo of throw in question.
  9. In the event of a tie once the Round Robin is completed and all teams are ranked, a tie breaker consisting of a single inning will be played. Each tied team will play one inning at a different set of boards, not against each other. The team with the highest point total at the end of the inning will win the tie breaker (team does not have to reach 21 in the tie breaker). If the tie-breaker is a tie, the tie breaker will be repeated.

 

COVID Precautions

We will be following New Jersey state guidelines related to COVID-19. The event will take place entirely outdoors. There will be 6 feet in between each cornhole game to ensure proper social distancing and give the teams ample space to play.
