Indoor Cornhole League

The Town of Hempstead Adult Cornhole League will be back in action this summer with a seven-week session at the Merrick Golf Clubhouse. The regular season will consist of six Thursday night sessions, beginning on June 30 and ending on August 11 (no session on July 21).  The league champions will be crowned during the one-night playoff round on August 18.  Non-monetary prizes will be awarded to the winning teams.

Due to the high demand for our cornhole league, a public lottery drawing is necessary to determine who will participate in the league.  The lottery will take place on Thursday, June 9 at 7 p.m. during open play night at the Merrick Golf Clubhouse.  You do not need to be present at the lottery in order to participate in the drawing.  Cornhole boards will be set up during open play night and all are invited to attend.

The lottery is open to Town of Hempstead residents only.  Team applications (two to four persons) must be submitted by June 2, 2022.  Teams must submit their completed form to Adam Reicherter at adamreic@hempsteadny.gov or fax to 516-292-6024.  Your team form may also be mailed to:  Town of Hempstead Parks and Rec. Cornhole League, 200 N Franklin St., Hempstead NY 11550, Attn: Adam Reicherter.  YOUR NAME MAY ONLY APPEAR ON ONE ENTRY FORM.

Registration fee of $30 per person will be collected only after the completion of the lottery drawing.  If selected and present at the lottery drawing, we will accept your registration fee payment that evening.  CHECKS ONLY, payable to: Town of Hempstead.
