We’re heading into the 6th week of NSL Conference Play.  The NSL format features 7 weeks of conference play followed by 4 to 5 weeks of playoffs to determine National Champions in 7 Divisions. 

Heading into the week 6 -  25 of the 33 conference titles are still up for grabs.  Two bowlers who have rolled all ten games have ‘knocked em all down’ - Charles Gray (Kingsport Senior Center - TN) and John Bates (Eagle Crest - WI) are perfect.  Seventy three (73) bowlers are members of the prestigious NSL 300 Club 17 Senior Wii Bowlers have averages of 290+.  Follow the NSL Action - Wii HAVE A GREAT THING BOWLING ON!

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. 

But 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!
