Cornhole Tournaments

If you have become an ardent fan of the family game Cornhole, then you will probably want to know about cornhole tournaments. It depends on your level of play, of course, to determine where you should play and how much you should invest, but there are tournaments throughout the country that cater to just about every level. Many of these tournaments are organized by local individuals and groups and not sanctioned by any Cornhole governing body, such as the American Cornhole Association (ACA).

Local cornhole tournaments

Many cornhole tournaments are organized for charity events. Their purpose is to raise money for a worthy cause, and this generally brings out a more tame crowd of cornhole enthusiasts –not the die-hard competitors who are looking to score gold at the next Olympics when cornhole finally becomes a sanctioned medal-earning sport.

The ACA will also list some of these tournaments on their website so that fans of the game can get the latest on where these tournaments will take place. It isn’t all that difficult to put together a cornhole tournament –it simply takes an open space with a level field and a number of cornhole boards and bean bags, which many charity events find donated by local families who want to take part in the event.

Cornhole tournaments of this nature are great for the entire family. Kids and adults can compete to see who will last the longest – mom or dad or brother or sister. You can cheer each other on and see who makes it to the championship round. Charity cornhole tournaments also are a great way to enjoy all the festivities that tend to accompany such a family fun event.

ACA Sponsored Tournaments

If you’re interested in the die hard competition, however, all you have to do is visit the ACA’s website –www.playcornhole.org- and see a list of all of the tournaments that are scheduled, and sanctioned, by the ACA throughout the country. Make note, however, that these tournaments will generally bring out the best players in the country and if you’re in it for fun, or are new to the activity, then you may not last long in it.

Still, the atmosphere can be vibrant and alive and just attending a cornhole tournament can offer you many insights into strategies and techniques that you weren’t aware of initially. Check the ACA’s website for dates and times and any contact information that is available so that you can take part in your first cornhole tournament.

If you build it …

If you don’t find a cornhole tournament in your area, then you can organize one yourself. It takes some time and effort, but once the groundwork is set, you can build it to be an annual event, gaining interest, participation, and possibly even money, in the long run.
