After their popularity in June and July, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will once again host a Cornhole tournament series as a part of Family Fun Saturdays at the track.

Sponsored by the Indiana Standardbred Association, the series will feature a social division and a competitive division. Both divisions will take place in The Yard at 7 p.m. on August 25, September 8 and 22, and October 13 and 27.

Both professional players and beginners are invited to participate each Saturday for a chance to win free gifts, dining coupons, free wagers and more. Sign up time for both divisions is 6 p.m.

The social division is free to enter with a format based on the number of entries. The competitive division is offered for an entry fee of $30 per team or $15 each, and includes a free t-shirt and an $800 guaranteed prize fund. Guests must be 18 to participate in the professional games.

The original tournaments were set to wrap up with the grand championship on Saturday, July 21, but the games have proved to be an essential part of Saturdays at Hoosier Park. The grand prize winners took home $1,000. After hearing requests from Cornhole players and racing fans alike, the tournaments are back to ring in the fall and the Championship Season at Hoosier Park.

“Having the Cornhole tournaments here has been a nice complement to our live racing excitement on Saturdays,” said Hoosier Park’s Vice President of Marketing Becky Young. “Whether you’re a competitive participant, playing for fun, or cheering your team on, it’s an entertaining experience for all.”

Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a beer garden, also located in The Yard, and a variety of dining options. The Cornhole tournament will be hosted in conjunction with live racing, which starts at 6:30 p.m. All American Cornhole Organization rules will apply for this event. Compete tournament details and rules are available at hoosierpark.com.

Hoosier Park’s ‘Family Fun Days’ are every Saturday throughout the entirety of the live racing season. Activities will include face painting, live entertainment, games and winner’s circle giveaways.

Live racing is conducted Tuesdays through Saturdays, now through November 10. First post is 6:30 p.m. each day. Additional information, including the full racing schedule and a complete list of racing promotions and events, is available at hoosierpark.com.
