Singles Rules

2015 Spring Singles Rules

Entry Fees:

$40/player for the entire session.  Players are refunded $10 at the end of the session if they do not forfeit any games or have to reschedule any games after the schedule for the week has been posted.

Part 1 – Divisional Play:

Weeks #1-8 will be division play.  Everyone will play everyone else within their division 3 times each.  Division 2 will have their playoffs on the 8th week, so their “regular season” will be from weeks #1-7.

Part 2 – Season Ending Tournament:

Week #9 – The last week of the season will be a Double elimination, single game tournament for all divisions.

*NOTE – When league play is complete, the highest finishing player in Divisions 2, 3 and 4 MUST move up to the next higher division for the season ending tournament.  They then become the lowest seed in the higher division for the tournament.

Division Payouts:

League Tournament
All Divs All Divs
1st $70 $70
2nd $40 $40
3rd $10 $10
4th $5

Plus trophies MAY be provided with funding coming from 50/50 raffles or other fundraisers.


–           Each player paid an extra $10 at the start of the session to cover potential forfeit fees.  Any player forfeiting more than one game on a given night will lose $5 of their $10.  If a player forfeits again on a 2nd night they will lose the other $5 and may be removed from the league.

–           Reschedules – any players rescheduling without advance notice will be charged a $5 reschedule fee (if the reschedule is allowed at all).

–           Players that do not forfeit/reschedule at all will get their entire $10 back at the end of the session.

More Details:

–          No refunds will be offered after 3.16.2015.

–         There will be home “teams” assigned to each game.  This will give the home player their choice of bags, who goes first, and which side of the board their players would like to pitch from.

–          Player standings are based on:

  • Win/Loss Record
  • Head to Head Record
  • One game playoff (if teams are tied for a cash spot), coin toss if teams are tied for a non-cash spot

–          There are NO full innings for singles games.

–          Players finishing higher in the divisional play will be the home team in the season ending tournament.

–          League commissioner reserves the right to re-schedule games at any time for any reason, including players arriving late based on extreme circumstances. (weather, emergencies etc…)

–          Subs MAY be allowed in singles, but MUST be approved by the league commissioner.  Subs must ranked the same or lower than the player they are replacing.

–          Appropriate conduct will be strictly enforced!  Please review this rule carefully. Foul language is not necessary and needs to be kept in check. Throwing bags out of anger, hitting boards, punching walls may be cause for dismissal and the player may be suspended for their actions.  Cleveland Cornhole holds the right to suspend any player for any amount of time due to inappropriate conduct.  Any damage to the cornhole equipment or to the host establishment itself will be paid for by the player causing the damage.  If you are removed or asked to leave from any host site for any reason you will be removed from that specific league with no refund and most likely a significant suspension from all future Cleveland Cornhole leagues and events.

PHYSICAL VIOLENCE WILL MEAN IMMEDIATE EJECTION FROM THE LEAGUE!  Physical violence will never be tolerated.  Along with that, threats of violence are also not acceptable, you may get a warning for threats, but no warnings for actual violence.

Misconduct such as throwing bags down, kicking boards/walls and/or punching walls will be dealt with as follows.  Any actions worse than those listed will most likely result in immediate suspension from the league.

First Offense – verbal warning

Second Offense – forfeiture of current game (or next game should the action come after completing a game or while between games)

Third Offense – ejection from the league

–          Any and all games, playoffs, championships and tournaments will only be played with equipment provided by Cleveland Cornhole.

–          Please do not bring any outside beverages to any Cleveland Cornhole Leagues or Tournaments. We are using most of our host establishments at little to no cost. Food and beverages are sold within the host establishment and they have requested that no outside food or beverage be brought in.  We take great pride in our relationships with our hosts, and feel it is our duty as a league to support their businesses.  *Note – the American Legion Hall sometimes does not offer food, when that is the case, you may bring outside food into the hall, but please, food only.

–          If a player desires to make a protest or there is a dispute with a foul, the players are to discuss the issue in a civil manner to determine the outcome of the issue.  If an agreement or decision cannot be made, the protesting team captain will ask the league director who will make a final decision.  PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL A GAME IS OVER TO BRING UP ANY ISSUES!  If there is an issue in the middle of a game that cannot be resolved by the players, find the league director immediately to discuss.

–          The final schedule along with standings for each specific league for all teams will be posted online at   All teams are responsible for obtaining their own start times.  Please do not email, text or call asking what time your team plays.  You are responsible for your own team.
