Cornhole | Bean Bag Distance

Cornhole courts are most commonly played on lawn surfaces with the two cornhole boards (platforms) placed 27’ | 8.23 m apart. This distance places the holes at 33’ | 10.06 m and requires a total overall dimension of 35’ | 10.67 m. Pitching boxes at 3’x4’ | 91x122 cm are located on both sides of the 2’x4’ | 61-122 cm boards and designate the zones for players to throw from. At the front edge of the boards and pitching boxes is the foul line which players cannot pass when throwing their bean bags.
