Begun in 1987 and held every other year, The National Senior Games became the largest qualified multisport event in the world when a record number of 13,712 athletes age 50 to 100+ competed at the 2019 Games in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Athletes are already buzzing about a big reunion at the 2023 National Senior Games July 7-18, 2023 in Pittsburgh.
While most of the 22 sports require athletes to qualify through one of the National Senior Games Association’s 52 Member Games, qualifying is not required when newer sports are added.
Cornhole is an OPEN SPORT with no qualifying necessary.
Cornhole competition is scheduled from July 7–9 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the hub of fun, fitness and fellowship at the National Senior Games. Competition will be in Singles, Doubles, Mixed Doubles and Non-Ambulatory.
