The Quincy Recreation Department has started its annual summer cornhole league this past week.

The league currently consists of eight two-person teams and practices for two hours every Thursday evening at South Park from June 24 to Aug 5. The last week of the league will be a championship tournament.

Each team plays three rounds against their opponent to 21 points each round. The team to win two out of three rounds takes the game.

Jill Heikel-Teade said that she and her husband, Ryan, joined the league in order to make new friends and be more a part of the community that they are recent transplants to.

“It’s super fun, I’m glad we did it,” Heikel-Teade said.

Heikel-Teade also said that she recommends anyone in the community who wants an activity to do during the summer to do it and that she would definitely do it again next year if it is offered.

The American Cornhole Association website explains the official way to play the game. According to the website cornhole is a “cancellation” scoring game. 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.

Cornhole is scored in one of two ways:

  • Bag In-The-Count (Woody): Any bag which comes to rest anywhere on top of the board. Each is worth one point.
  • Bag In-The-Hole (Cornhole): Any bag which is thrown through the hole or knocked through the hole by another bag. Each is worth three points.
  • Any bag that does not reach the board is a foul bag and not worth any points.
