You may have played cornhole at a cookout or family gathering, but this weekend at the Virginia Beach Field House, cornhole was on another level.

It was the first annual Beast of the Beach cornhole tournament put on by the Hampton Roads Sports Commission. There was a $17,000 guaranteed payout and a top prize of $4,500.

“A lot of the cookouts and a lot of the local bars have cash prizes. There’s a tv component to this, the American Cornhole League. A lot of players play there as pros for major cash winnings, so we wanted to recreate that here,” said Executive Director of the Hampton Roads Sports Commission, Claudell Clark.

Congratulations to Frank Modlin and Jamie Graham for winning the first ever Beast of the Beach Cornhole Championship and taking home the championship belt!
