How To Plan A Cornhole Tournament (Bracket Included)

How to Plan a Cornhole Tournament (Bracket Included)

Nothing says summer like a good old-fashioned game of Cornhole! But what’s better than a game of Cornhole? The obvious answer is, of course, two games of Cornhole—but today we’re going to be going over all the things you’ll need to do to plan a  Cornhole tournament this summer.

Organizing Your Cornhole Tournament

To organize a Cornhole tournament, you’ll need people, a place, and Cornhole. You can set this up at someone’s house in their backyard, but then they’d have home turf advantage, so we recommend going to a public park in your area. Cornhole equipment can be a little cumbersome to transport, so we recommend our Cornhole board carrying case. It has enough room to hold two regulation Cornhole boards and several sets of bags; it’s also durable and great for storage!

Cornhole is played with two teams of two players each, and you’ll want at least six or eight teams to make for a more exciting Cornhole tournament. If you have too few or too many people to make a bracket easily, we won’t tell if you fudge the numbers a little and play it as singles or teams of three instead, the point is to have fun! Don’t forget the kiddos! Kids love playing Cornhole and even though it might be difficult to get the younger ones to wait in between turns, having a kids Cornhole tournament alongside the adult’s Cornhole tournament will be a good time for everyone.

Hunger and Cornhole Don’t Mix

Cornhole isn’t a fancy game, and we’re not fans of overcomplicated food options like catering—unless it’s pizza or a big sandwich platter, in that case, sign us up! If you ask everyone participating in your Cornhole tournament to kick in a few bucks, you’ll have more than enough money to pay for that sandwich platter, or pick up hotdogs, hamburgers, and fixings to grill at the park.

Another way to go is to have a pot-luck: pick a theme, organize a sign-up sheet, and make sure someone reliable is in charge of the plates, cups, and napkins. Don’t forget the cooler and drinks, there’s nothing like a cold one after a game of Cornhole, and that goes double when you’re talking about a Cornhole tournament!

Don’t Forget the Prizes!

Of course, we’re going to recommend a custom Cornhole game as the grand prize for your first Cornhole tournament. Make a tradition out of it by doing this every year. The winner gets to take the board home to use until next year’s tournament. Winners can also get to keep a special custom Cornhole bags you had printed with the name and year of your Cornhole tournament.

We know a Cornhole tournament will help you make this summer your best summer ever, and every summer after will be even better than that when you carry on the annual Cornhole tournament tradition! We can even help you do the first step right now; share this article with all the friends you want to participate in your Cornhole tournament and get the conversation started! So… who’s down for some Cornhole this summer?
