Start Your Own Cornhole League

Cornhole leagues are a great way to get together with other fans of the sport.

Gone are the days when cornhole was a simple backyard game that people did to have a bit of fun. Nowadays, cornhole has evolved into a competitive sport. Cornhole fanatics are investing time and resources to be the best in the game.

If you are one of the many individuals who want to excel and be known for your mad cornhole skills, you need to compete with other players who are as dedicated to cornhole as you. One of the best ways to meet your long-term cornhole goal is to compete in a league. However, if there is currently no cornhole league in your state, you can create one by first organizing a cornhole tournament.

Starting a cornhole tournament is an effective way to build a following, get to know players, meet potential sponsors, and get a feel of how your league will be.

Planning and Organizing Stage

During the planning and organizing stage, you need to determine when you are going to hold your tournament. You should also identify the exact location where you are going to hold the event. If you intend to have numerous participants, make sure to reserve a large indoor or outdoor venue beforehand. Apart from date and location make sure that you also plan on the food and drinks that will be served, additional entertainment so that the event would be more memorable, names of people who can assist you, the prizes you will give out and possible sponsors who can provide them, equipment, participation fee, and promotional strategies.

Rules and Registration

Participants should be aware of the official cornhole rules so make sure to give all of them copies during registration. As for registration, make it as easy for participants to join as possible. Give them several registration options such as email, mail, phone, website form, or even on-site registration during the actual event.

Promotion

Create a website, utilize social media platforms, ask help from your sponsors, and make sure to find creative ways on how you can promote the tournament. You can even partner with a favorite charity organization to make it more meaningful and popular.

Launching and Awarding Stage

Your opening ceremonies should be explosive and entertaining to set the tone for the entire day. Invite popular cornhole players if possible or other local celebrities in the area. During the awarding of the winners, make sure that your trophy, certificate, and other mementos sufficiently praise everyone who participated. Make sure that winners are awarded properly and given due recognition.

How to Start a Cornhole League

After holding a tournament and getting a feel of how everything is organized and the overall response of the cornhole community, you can now start a league. Invite all the players who participated, decide how often you are going to meet, and who will be in charge of the league, in general.

Having a cornhole league in your state will provide you and all cornhole enthusiasts in your region with the perfect opportunity to regularly meet, hone your skills, and compete with other leagues.

If you plan on building a league in your own state, make sure that you have the right cornhole boards and other accessories!
