The NSL playoffs roll into round 3 of the Championship season. Featured games include semi-final matches in the Championship Division and the Master 2 Division. Championship matches include perennial power Up Your Alley A (Kingsport Senior Center) vs EL Slow Rollers (East Lake, Atlanta, GA) and the always high scoring teams - Bethany Village (Indianapolis, IN) vs another ‘always in the finals’ Alley Oops (Santa Clarita Senior Center). In the Master 2/3 Division all new teams battle it out - HVH High Rollers (Walker Methodist, Lakeview, MN) vs The Twigs (The Woodlands, Lebanon, NH) and Belmont Trouble Makers (Belmont Village, Atlanta, GA) vs Packing the Punch (Bellevue Retirement, Green Bay, WI).
Quarter final matches are the highlight of the 5 other divisions as teams roll their way to the week 4 semi final matches.
Good Luck to all our senior bowlers. Thanks to all the teams, senior bowlers and coaches who participated this season.
The National Championships are played in 7 divisions based on levels of ability. The top 32 teams in each division as determined by their total pins after 7 weeks of play make it to the National Championships which are played in a ‘one and done’ format much like the NCAA Basketball Final Four. Champions and Runners-up receive NSL etched glass awards to add to their trophy case along with bragging rights being the National Senior Wii Bowling Champions!
Join the NSL for the 2017 Championships (Fall Season) beginning the week of Sept 11. Registration will open July 10.
The 2016 NSL National Championships featured 1,593 registered bowlers making up 288 teams from 96 communities. Thirty one (31) states were represented with Georgia leading the way (12 communities) followed by California (10), Pennsylvania (9) and New York (7).
We added a new division this season featuring beginner and challenged senior Wii bowlers who are start-up bowlers averaging less than 120 pins for game. Commissioner, Dennis Berkholtz, commented - “We’re happy to have new communities with start-up programs join the NSL. Our goal is have balanced competition featuring Wii bowlers on every level of ability.”
Wii bowlers in the NSL compete in 8 divisions. Divisions are determined by the average score of the 4 bowlers making up a team. Divisional breakdowns——CHAMPIONS (average 250 to 300); SUPER ELITE (average 220 to 250); ELITE 1 (average 200 to 220); ELITE 2 (average 180 to 200); SUPER MASTER (average 160 to 180); MASTER 1 (average 140 to 160); MASTER 2 (average 120 to 140) and MASTER 3 (less than 120).
