Mildly surprised that I have not seen a cornhole thread on the board, so I'll attempt to get this started. Anything cornhole, but I'll lead with a pic of some custom bags I had made:

Pickleball has also become really big, and I'd never heard of it 3 years ago.

Never really understood the excitement with cornhole... someone just bastardized the old cowboys washer board game using bags. I think washers was way more fun.

As for pickleball... I was playing that every.waking.hour back in the late 80's in high school. Hell, I remember skipping classes to play for money against fellow classmates. It was serious. LOVE to see that game making a comeback. OKC was just starting to get a number of courts when I had to up and move to Houston... so now I need to find the p-ball action down here. It's fun.

When we e moved to Houston (League City) in 2009 my wife joined the local Y. I was excited, thinking I could find a lot of pickup basketball. It was 10% kids basketball, 90% pickleball, which i had never seen. Swore I'd never play, but when my kids started playing about a year ago I tried it. It's really fun. Still have only played a few times, but plan to play more.
