All Weather Cornhole Boards: Benefits, Performance, and Price

Although the game of cornhole has recently become a household known game to many people around the country, the game has actually been around since the 1800’s. Whether the game was started by a farmer in Kentucky or a farmer in Cincinnati (a continued debate) we definitely know one thing, this game is one of the most fun games to play and own.

Here's a link to an article on the history of cornhole.

Majority of the quality cornhole boards you see on the market are made with some kind of wood. Using wood for a cornhole board is great because of its durability and provides a smooth and stable surface for gameplay. That being said, wood is not always the most friendly material when it comes to dealing with water and water based elements. Water can cause wood to weaken, warp, swell, and more.

This is the exact reason we decided to partner with Trex Decking, the number one decking company in the world. Together we created one of the first All Weather Cornhole Boards on the market, which plays just like a regular cornhole board. In this article we are going to talk about the benefits of owning an all weather cornhole board, the type of performance you can expect from these boards, and the prices associated with them.

The Benefits of All Weather Cornhole Boards

Partnering with Trex Decking allowed us to understand what it would take to build a wood-like cornhole board that kept the same consistency, feel, and gameplay as your usual wood cornhole board. Much like they have shown with their decks, having an all weather product allows you the freedom to not worry about the weather and what damage it might cause you.

That being said let’s talk about the most obvious and important benefit of using these boards, the all weather capabilities. As we mentioned before, water and water based elements can cause wooden cornhole boards to weaken, warp, expand, and crack. This is not ideal for someone who has invested into a set of cornhole boards for their home.

The All Weather Cornhole Boards are constructed from a special composite material that does not absorb moisture. These boards can be left outside year-round without having to worry about any problems. This allows people to have a peace of mind with their cornhole boards and not worry about their boards being damaged. Any water that accumulates on these boards can easily be wiped off or left to air dry with no problem.

Performance

When it came to creating the all weather cornhole board, it was crucial to us that the board played just like a regular tournament style cornhole board. We decided that we wouldn’t come out with the product unless we could guarantee the same type of performance. After much testing and experimentation, we concluded that we had finally created a board that played exactly like your regular tournament style cornhole board.

One of the slight differences between the all weather boards and wood cornhole boards is the weight. The all weather cornhole boards weigh slightly less than the wood boards and this can cause a bit more bounce. We used extra hardware in creating these boards and placed our screws in specific locations to provide bounce reduction on the board tops, counteracting the weight difference.

Combining the all weather boards with a set of all weather cornhole bags will provide you with the complete all weather cornhole set up. Aside from the all weather capabilities, this can allow you to wash your boards and bags without a problem and keep everything looking new and clean.

Price

The special composite that the all weather cornhole boards are made from is more expensive than wood. Although these boards can be a bit more costly, they provide you with much more than your usual wood board. You are getting what you pay for with these cornhole boards when you consider the all weather capabilities.

After doing a bit of research on any type of all weather cornhole boards available on the market, it seems the average price range is between $299-$425. One thing to be mindful of when purchasing a set of all weather cornhole boards is the quality of which they’re made. As you know, not all cornhole boards play the same and if you are going to invest your money into a set, you want it to be the right set.
