Cornhole Board Dimensions

Board Dimensions

The following dimensions and measurements will serve to determine standards and specifications for cornhole boards.

Each cornhole board shall be 47½ to 48 inches in length and 23½ to 24 inches wide, made of smooth plywood that measures at least ½-inch in thickness. ACA sanctioned cornhole tournaments should only be played with wooden cornhole boards, as there is significant variance in play between wooden, plastic, and other surfaces.

  • The hole in each cornhole board shall be 6 inches in diameter. Its center shall be 9 inches from the top and 12 inches from each side of the board edges.
  • The front of the cornhole board shall be 3-4 inches from bottom to top.
  • The back of the cornhole board shall be approximately 12 inches from ground to the highest point of the deck.
  • The board finish shall be sanded to a very smooth texture, and there shall not be any blemishes in the wood surface that might disrupt or distort play.
  • The board can be painted with a semi-gloss exterior latex paint resulting in a surface that allows bags to slide, but is not so slippery that it allows the bags to slide back down the board.
