The NSL is in its 11th year of providing Wii Bowling Championships for seniors.  On average, without COVID 19, we have 75/80 communities participating each season with 1,300+ registered Wii bowlers representing 260/275 teams.  We roll through 2 seasons each calendar year. 

The NSL provides participation certificates for all bowlers as well as certificates for conference champions.  Winners and Finalists at the National Championship level receive etched glass awards.  We also name and honor a Senior Wii Bowler of the Year and a NSL Wii Coach of the Year.

2021 NSL National Championships begin the week of September 6.  Registration opens June 1, 2021.

We’re looking forward to our senior Wii Bowlers returning to the ‘lanes’.  Call (435 714 9491) or email (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) if you have any questions or want more information.  Wii MAKE THINGS HAPPEN AND Wii DO ALL THE WORK.  OUR SENIOR BOWLERS HAVE ALL THE FUN!

How the NSL works—Teams start the season bowling in conferences made up of 8 teams each.  Following 7 weeks of bowling the NSL crowns champions in each conference.  Communities receive Certificates of Bowling Excellence for winning conference championships.  After conference play the top 32 teams in each of 7 divisions bowl in a one and done format to determine National Champions in each division.  National Champions and runner-ups (Finalists) receive NSL Etched Glass Awards. 

NSL Wii Bowlers bring out the best in the NSL motto - LIVE ACTIVE.  LIVE YOUNG.  LIVE LIFE!  We have fun.  We stay happy and healthy.  We look forward to the competition each week.  We find competitiveness we never knew we had.  We strive to improve.  We stay in touch with friends and teammates.  We are true Champions.  We love the NSL!!!
