NSL senior Wii bowling teams posted scores as week 3 came to an end. NSL conference standings are determined by NSL points not total pins. Teams play one match a week. A match is two games. Each game is worth two points and the total pins of both games are worth one point. Therefore a match is worth 5 NSL points. If a team wins both games they are awarded 5 points and win the match 5-0 - 2 points for each game and 1 point for the most pins. If each team wins 1 game each team receives 2 points. The match is then determined by total pins with the team with the most total pins gaining 1 point and winning the match 3-2. Check the standings by clicking ‘standings’ found on the yellow banner above.
The NSL made a conscious effort to balance the conferences and from first look - mission accomplished. An effort is also being made to experiment with handicap scoring in future NSL league play. Champions in conferences 2 and 3 will be determined by a handicap system developed by Al Marean a Wii bowler and resident of Good Shepherd Village of Endwell, Endwell, NY.

Teams are made up of 4 Wii bowlers minimum with a limit of 8 bowlers on any one team. Teams play once a week for 7 weeks followed by up to 3 weeks of playoffs. Teams play in their own communities.
