Following week 7 the NSL repositions teams based on 7 weeks of Wii bowling action.  Thirty two (32) teams are placed in the 7 NSL divisions and play a ‘one and done’ format to determine NSL National Wii Bowling Champions.  It’s a fun and exciting time for NSL senior Wii bowlers and the coaches who lead them.

Statistically speaking, many NSL Wii bowlers are showing vast improvement over the 6 years of NSL competition.  Coaches confirm that serious senior Wii bowlers practice more often to get better as they chase conference and divisional crowns.  Even those bowlers whose averages have been lower in the past have shown improvement.  If you have bowlers who want to compete in the best and only Wii bowling league featuring seniors from all over the U.S. join the NSL.  Competitive bowlers, those who play only for fun and those seniors who benefit from the team atmosphere and the exercise, bowl in the NSL.  Wii have something for everyone and Wii Have a Good Thing Bowling On!! 

Fifteen hundred sixty three (1,563) senior Wii bowlers make up the 306 registered teams representing 99 communities from 30 states.  The Championship features 7 divisions based on level of ability.  Defending national champion, Dayton VA Medical Center, will be challenged in the Champions division by 7 of the strongest senior Wii bowling teams in the nation.
