Whether you want to get competitive or play for fun, all are welcome to throw bags at the Yankee Homecoming Cornhole Tournament. Yankee Homecoming is partnering up with NBPT Cornhole to bring two tournaments to the festivities—one for beginners and one for players that regularly compete in local leagues.
The Beginners Tournament will take place on August 1st at 12 – 4 pm at the Mall as part of Olde Fashion Sunday. The contest will consist of teams of two competing in a double-elimination tournament. All casual bags players are welcome to grab a partner and compete for bragging rights of Yankee Homecoming’s best beginner team and a cash payout for the top five finishers. If you’ve got a lucky set of bags you can bring your own or borrow a set from NBPT Cornhole. To participate, preregister here and pay the $40 team entry fee the day of the Yankee Homecoming Cornhole Tournament. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Yankee Homecoming Committee.
Those competing in the Beginners Tournament are encouraged to download the free Scoreholio app to track their team’s progress and standing. The app will also notify teams when it is their turn to play.
If you’ve taken your cornhole game out of the backyard and compete in a league, sign up for the Competitive Tournament at the Newburyport Elks on August 7th at 12 -5 pm. Preregister here to compete for the title of Yankee Homecoming Cornhole Tournament champion. Each team must pay $60 to participate, due on the day of the event.
