WII BOWLING LEAGUE
What is Wii Bowling?
Wii Bowling is part of the Wii Sports video game, played on the Nintendo Wii Gaming System. It is a computer based bowling game with wireless motion sensitive remote controllers. The motion controllers are used in place of a bowling ball and allow participate to simulate actual game play.
This is a great alternative for those who love to bowl but have difficulty managing a heavy bowling ball. Our bowling leagues are very popular and our guests have a great time. Enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of your teammates while experiencing all the fun and exercise of a real life bowling league.
For a complete list of programs offered to seniors or if you have questions regarding services available, please contact the Senior Center office at (586) 777-7177.
Bi-Monthly newsletters may be picked up at the Center. To receive a copy of the newsletter by mail, there is a fee of $6 for 12 issues which is payable at the Senior Center Office.
