After months of competitive play, the “SAS Strikers” from St. Andrews Estates South in Boca Raton, FL, will face off against the “Riverside Silver” from Riverside Place in Charleroi, PA, in Tuesday's National Senior League Wii Bowling Championship Game.

More than 180 teams from 102 senior living communities in 24 states participated in the competition this year, according to NSL organizers. The regular season lasted from Oct. 19 through Nov. 23, and brought in players of all levels. The first-ever Wii Bowling tournament wraps up Tuesday with the showdown between the SAS Strikers (ranked third) and the Riverside Silver (ranked 16th). The two teams will compete head-to-head in a live, online championship extravaganza.

“We've been blown away by the quality of competition during our first tournament,” NSL founder Dennis Berkholtz said. “We've had one player bowl two consecutive perfect games, a blind bowler average a score of 161 this season, and just recently the 32nd placed team knocked off the number one seed in playoff action.”
