Wii bowling has become popular for many, including seniors at the SCV Senior Center.

Two teams compete in tournaments throughout the Western states and are a force to be reckoned with.

Age and health are never a factor, people in their 70s, 80s and 90s are competing like true champions.

“There’s a player that is 103,” said Bernie Katz, Coach of the Alley Oops.

A solid group of friends cheering each other on to get that higher score and propel the team forward.

“I hadn’t smiled in two years and they just really got me going,” said Pat Gold, team Alley Oops. “It makes me feel comfortable and warm, it makes me feel loved and I’ve met a lot more people than I would have,” she said.
