GCM TO HOST URBAN SPORTS LA CORNHOLE LEAGUE
July 05, 2016

If you’ve ever been to a tailgate or a backyard BBQ, you’ve heard the sweet thumping of corn-filled bags making contact with wooden boards. The game is inviting because it’s simple - throw a bag into a hole. It’s almost like basketball, but in cornhole, you’re encouraged to steady your stance with a beer in the other hand. 

Having run cornhole for 3 years, Urban Sports LA has come up with some useful tips to becoming a cornhole master. 

Have a drink and eat some food. You’ll need those carbs in this physically extenuating game.  Balance yourself by putting your lead foot forward when you throw. If you don’t know which one’s your lead foot, have someone push your back and the foot that you use to balance yourself is your lead foot. Keep your throwing motion simple by starting from the side of your thigh to the middle of your chest.  Aim for the front of the board so the bag slides, and the bag slides evenly if you rotate it sideways.

5. Pose like these bosses to get exponentially better!    

You want to get the bag into the hole because it nets three points, and if you get it to stay on the board, that’s one point. If the bag doesn’t get anywhere near the board, take a swig of beer and try again.  

While we adhere to all the standard cornhole rules, we do have one rule that we take very seriously. The rule states, “If a player get 4 bags into the hole on one turn, he or she can choose anyone to proudly don the One Direction backpack until it happens again.” Zayn Malik may have left the band but USLA proudly keeps the spirit of the original band alive.
