NSL - The National Senior League



October 07, 2018

NSL Playoffs start this week.  Senior Wii Bowlers hit the lanes to play for championships in seven divisions.  Click on the Brackets at the top of the page to find your favorite team and who they will be matched up against in week 1.  The format is ‘one and done’ - you win you keep playing.  You lose and the season is over.  Depending on the number of teams in the divisions, the playoffs last 4 or 5 weeks.

The playoffs follow 7 weeks of NSL conference play whereby 35 conference champions were crowned - 33 teams won their conference outright. In one of the conferences two teams tied for the top spot.  Check out the conference title holders by clicking on STANDINGS in the yellow banner at the top of the page.

The NSL features senior bowlers from all walks of life.  We feature bowlers of all abilities.  We feature bowlers from CCRC’s, Independent Senior Living Communities, Affordable Housing Communities, Senior Centers, VA Hospitals and Nursing Homes.  We feature Senior Wii Bowlers with disabilities, bowlers in wheel chairs and legally blind bowlers. 

We are most proud of our 90 + year old bowlers.  They bring out the best in the NSL motto - LIVE ACTIVE.  LIVE YOUNG,  LIVE LIFE.

They have fun.  They stay happy and healthy.  They look forward to the competition each week.  They find a competitiveness they never knew they had.  They strive to improve.  They stay in touch with their friends and teammates.  They encourage others to participate.   

At 90+ years old they are the true Champions of the NSL!
