October 16, 2016

The first round of the NSL playoffs ended Friday with seeded teams dominating play.  A couple of upsets were in the works as #32 seed Evenglow Turkeys beat out #1 seed COA 2 in the Elite 1 Division and #27 seed DH1 eliminated #6 seed Blueberry Rollers in the same division.  In the Master 1 Division #31 seed CVC Strikers sent #2 seed BV Village Strikers to an early shower.  Round 2 action gets starts Monday with results on line on Friday.  Follow the action by clicking on your favorite division above.

Following the playoffs the NSL will name the NSL Wii Bowler(s) of the Year,  NSL Coach(s) of the Year and NSL Most Improved Team of the Year.  The NSL philosophy - everyone in the NSL is a Champion.

Forty teams (40) were crowned conference champions following 7 weeks of conference play!

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 6 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!

The 2016 NSL season features 1,593 registered bowlers making up 288 teams from 96 communities.  Thirty one (31) states are 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.”
