NCL STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT - OCTOBER 10th, 2020 - CHADRON, NEBRASKA
Each cornhole board shall be 47.5 to 48 inches in length and 23.5 to 24 inches wide, made of smooth plywood that measures at least 1/2-inch in thickness. NCL sanctioned cornhole tournaments should only be played with wooden cornhole boards, as there is significant variance in play between wooden, plastic, and other surfaces.
The cornhole bags shall be made from two fabric squares 6.25" x 6.25" with a 0.25" stitched seam on all four sides. Bags should be made from durable fabric.
Each bag shall be filled with approximately 2 cups of feed corn and finished bags should be roughly 6 square inches and weigh 14-16 ounces. (Plastic pellets may also be used) in lieu of feed corn.
Every match is broken down into innings of play. During an inning of play, each player must pitch all four of his/her bags. An inning is never completed until all players pitch all four of his/her bags.
Two single players compete against one another until a single winner is determined.
DOUBLES (Traditional NCL Tournament Format)
Two teams, consisting of two players, compete against one another until a winning team is determined.
The approved method of scoring for the sport of cornhole is “cancellation” scoring. In cancellation scoring, the points of one player cancel out the points of their opponent. Using this method, only one player/team can score in each inning.
PLAYER PITCHING ROTATION
The player or team who scored in the preceding inning has honor pitching first in the next inning. If neither player or team scores, the player or team who pitched first in the preceding frame shall retain first pitch in the next frame.
PLAYER POSITIONS DURING PLAY
FOUL BAG RULE VIOLATIONS
The following are rule violations that must be spotted and called by a player or assigned judge. The penalty is to declare the bag a foul bag, which requires the bags to be removed from the court prior to resuming play.
The game shall be played to the predetermined number of twenty-one points. The first player/team to reach (or exceed) that amount at the conclusion of an inning is the winner.
