National Senior League Wii Bowling Champions Announced

The National Senior League is the nation’s only competitive Wii organization for seniors in assisted living or other senior living facilities. They host three annual Wii Bowling and Wii Golf tournaments in which teams from communities across the country can play to win. Games are transmitted across states by webcam. These games are a lively and social way for seniors to get some exercise and have fun.

Last week, the NSL announced the winners of its Wii Bowling championships. Joe Riccobene of the team SAS Strikers held a 290 bowling average-the score to beat for both the spring and fall seasons. Evelyn Kelly of Happy Strikers averaged 289, bringing her team along with her to the 2011 NSL Finals. Bob Brigham of the UnbeWiiVables matched Kelly’s average of 289 and held the record of most perfect games at twenty-one. All received the title of NSL Wii Bowler of the Year 2011.

The National Senior League also names a Wii Coach of the Year annually, and this time the title goes to Tom Gray of Vintage Senior Living. Gray coached his own team, the Silver Strykers, but he also led over a dozen other Vintage Senior Living teams. Gray is the Activities Director in his community. He’ll go to Washington, D.C. on October 18 to accept his award.

“Tom’s enthusiasm, management and ability to oversee up to 16 teams demonstrate the leadership skills he possesses,” said the NSL’s president and commissioner, Dennis Berkholtz. “He is a true champion and we are proud to award him the 2011 NSL National Wii Bowling Coach of the Year.”
