Cornhole Game Construction

Top Cornhole Court Installation Specialist

Are you and your family ready for a fun game of cornhole, and some friendly competition? Cornhole can be played by people in all age ranges, from recreational games at home to ACA (American Cornhole Association) tournaments at a sports facility.

The game can be played as either a singles or a doubles match, and is divided into innings. Each player possesses four corn bags/beanbags that are pitched one at a time, with the goal of tossing the beanbag into the “cornhole” on the court.  Once all the beanbags have been pitched, the inning is over, and then repeats until the first team reaches a score of twenty-one points.  

If you’re ready to build your brand new wooden cornhole court, the experts at Sport Surfaces are here to customize it for you. We have over 20 years of professional experience in the industry. We build top quality sport surfaces, and will gladly assist you.

Factors to consider when building a new cornhole court:

  • Court Location: It is best to locate a flat area of land or floor area for the construction of your cornhole court.
  • Costs involved: Materials and Labor
  • Construction Process: DIY (Do It Yourself) vs. hiring a professional company
 

Cornhole Court Materials and Specifications:

We follow the ACA guidelines for building our cornhole courts:

  •  The two rectangular wooden platforms will measure 48” x 24” constructed from ½-inch plywood.  Note:  Wooden cornhole courts are the preferred construction material of the ACA
  •  Heights of the platform: Front end- 2 ½- 4inches tall from bottom to top Back- 1foot off the ground to the highest point of the deck
  • ·Four 2 x 4 x 48”s and four 2 x 4 x 21”s for the frame
  • ·Four 2 x 4 x 11 ½” for the legs
  •  The hole in each cornhole board measures 6 inches in diameter. The center of the hole is located 9 inches down from the top of the cornhole court, and 12 inches from either side of the court’s edges.
  •  The top surface of the board should have a smooth texture when finished, to ensure that there is no disruption to the beanbag pitch during the game.
  •   A latex paint or semi-gloss exterior should be utilized as the material to maximize the ease of the beanbag properly sliding across the board.
  •  The corn bags or beanbags should be 6 inches square, fabricated from duck canvas and filled with two cups of corn feed. Note: If corn feed is unavailable, there are corn bags for purchase that contain a plastic filling as an alternative option.
 

Cornhole Court Building Process

Our licensed certified technicians begin the court construction process by:

  1. Cutting all the wood required to construct the cornhole court. 
  2. Next, we take the wood for the platform box, and fasten it together with deck screws.
  3. We then cut the legs to make sure they are flush with the platform, and sit at the correct measurements. Once that is done, we attach the legs with carriage bolts, and angle them so the cornhole court sits correctly. 
  4. Next, we cut the hole on the top of the platform to create the cornhole area for the pitching of the beanbags.
  5. After, we conduct a process of sanding the entire board, and filling the screw holes with putty.
  6. The last steps are to prime the box for a customized paint job. We can create designs, add decals, or wraps as part of the decorating process.
