CORNHOLE SINGLES TOURNAMENT – DECEMBER 20
December 20, 2020
Everyone has their own, unique way of playing cornhole. Read below to learn The Strand’s rules!
Our first and most important rule is to have fun! Everyone in our league comes out for a good time, so please exercise sportsmanship and try not to take things too seriously.
A game is made up of frames wherein each team rotates tossing their team’s 4 bags until all bags (8) have been tossed towards the opposite board. At the conclusion of each frame, the score is calculated and added to the team’s net total. A winner is determined when a team reaches or surpasses 21 at the conclusion of a frame. Number of frames played varies per match.
Each court consists of two boards spaced 27 feet apart front-to-front and two sets of 4 bags. All boards and bags are provided by The Strand, but you are welcome to bring your own bags if you prefer.
Schedules and Game Time:
The schedule for each week is posted on the schedule page. Each match consists of 2 out of 3 games. Play time is 45 minutes from the scheduled match time.
**The Strand reserves the right to extend the season due to rain outs.
The object is to be the first team to reach or surpass 21 points. Points are scored by landing a tossed bag on the board (1 point) and by having a tossed bag drop into the hole (3 points). Once all eight bags have been tossed, players calculate the points scored per team. The team with the higher number of points is award the point difference.
Example: “Team A” scores 8 points in frame 1, and “Team B” scores 2 points in frame 1. “Team B”‘s 2 points are subtracted from “Team A”‘s 8 points awarding 6 points to “Team A”‘s net total.
Beginning a Match:
The captains begin the match with a coin flip or playing rock, paper, scissors. The winner determines the end from which play will begin and gets the first throw. In the playoffs, the higher seeded team has those privileges.
After the first frame (four bags tossed from each team from one side), the team that scores the most points per frame tosses first in the next frame. If no points are scored, the last team to score points in a frame tosses first. The winners of a game toss first in the next game.
Knocking Opponents Bags Off Boards:
This is a risky strategy some players like to use. It is legal.
Violations Resulting in Bag Being Removed from Board:
Bags may be removed from board if the player crosses the foul line before releasing the bag or the bag hits the ground and bounces onto the board.
The first team to reach a minimum of 21 points at the end of a frame wins the game.
Players may stand anywhere to the left or right of the board but must stay on that side for the entire match. Court area is anywhere behind the front of the board. Teammates stand at opposite boards but must play on the same side. When players switch sides they will stay on the same side so that a player that threw from the left of the board in game one will throw from the right of the board in game two, and back to the left of the board for game three. Players on the opposing side that are not tossing should stand back on the concrete so they don’t interfere with the tossing players.
The foul line is located at the front of the board. All players must toss from behind the foul line. If a player crosses the foul line on his or her toss, that toss does not count and it is removed from the board.
Player Requirements and Substitutions:
A minimum of 2 players per team must be present to play. (We recommend teams of 3 to 4 players to ensure enough players each week.) You may substitute players during a match after a game has concluded.
Each match is allotted 45 minutes to play the best 2 out of 3. A team will forfeit their match if at least two players do not show up within 15 minutes of their scheduled playing time. If a team shows up within the allotted 15 minutes, that team will not receive extra time to play, and must complete the match in the remaining 45 minute allocated match time. If the best 2 out of 3 has not been determined within the scheduled timeframe, the team that showed up late will lose the remaining games in the match.
“No-Shows”/24 hour notice:
A “no-show” is when you do not provide 24 hour notice that you will not make your match or do not show for your match; it will be recorded as a forfeit. If a team “no-shows”/forfeits twice in one season, they will forfeit their registration and will be dropped from the remainder of the season. Please let us know if you cannot make your scheduled matches so we can arrange a team to stand in for you and your opponents have a team to play. If you notify us more than 24hrs in advance, you will still receive those losses on your record, but it will not count as a forfeit
All teams qualify for the playoffs! In order for a player to play during the playoffs, you MUST be listed as a player on the team’s current season roster and must have played at least one game that season. Rosters may be edited up to the 5th week of play.
