HAVERFORD COLLEGE CORNHOLE
RING OF CHAMPIONS
"Combining the skills of horseshoes with the intensity of gladiator fighting each and every day"
The Haverford College Cornhole Ring of Champions was founded in September of 2004 on the grounds of historic Haverford College (Haverford, PA). It was and remains Haverford's only competitive club sport which combines the skills of horseshoes and the intensity of gladiator fighting.
Cornhole originated in Cincinnati, OH and was imported to Haverford by the recreation visionary Mark Rembert. With the game of cornhole being confined primarily to the Midwest, Haverford College has become the root of East Coast action. The Haverford College Cornhole Ring of Champions’ membership includes representatives from about fifty states and provides the greatest example of cross-regional cornhole exhibition and competition.
At its inception, the Ring of Champions became Haverford's largest club, a title it still un-officially boasts today. While cornhole has experienced its share of setbacks, including a complete decimation during the winter of 2006, it has recovered and is stronger than ever.
The coming of the 2006-2007 year brings high expectations for the Ring of Champions. With the central office relocating to Lloyd 40’s, cornhole has finally found a permanent home on Lloyd Green. The Ring of Champions hopes to meet the goal of a 100% participation rate among the Haverford community for the upcoming year through increased marketing and by hosting the most extravagant tournaments this side of the Little Miami River.
