Welcome to the Northwest Senior Tour....


The NWST was formed in 1990 to provide scratch tournaments for senior bowlers, 50 and older. Since its inception a number of changes have been made to improve the organization and encourage more bowlers to participate. Among these are:

  • The addition of women bowlers 40 and over
  • A Super Senior class for bowlers 60 to 64
  • A Super Senior + class for bowlers 65 and older
The leadership of this member-owned organization continues to solicit suggestions for additional improvements.

The NWST has a remarkable history of bowling accomplishments. Here's a summary of highlights from 1990 - 2017

  • 674 bowlers have competed in the NWST
  • 90% of all participants have received a cash payout
  • 215 bowlers have bowled 241 - 300 games
  • 41 bowlers have bowled 64 - 800 series with a high of 859
  • $6,137 won by a single bowler in a single year
  • $41,322 won by a single bowler over several years
  • $1,775,180.50 has been paid out in prizes since the inception of the NWST

Linn Lanes 2019
Two of the Northwest's biggest names in bowling, Shawn Copeland and Craig Tuholski, teamed up to win the 2019 NW Senior Tour 90+ Swiss Doubles at Walnut City Lanes in McMinnville, OR. 

Copeland and Tuholski began the second day in 8th place.  Their 521 in game 7 of the tournament started the march to the top.  Averaging 228 as a team for the tournament the duo won five of six matches on Sunday.

After 11 games the tournament leaders were Frank Dietz Jr and Dan Lancaster by a mere 20 pins.  Copeland and Tuholski were too strong and won the deciding match 501-415. 

Finishing third, six pins out of second, was the strong team of Mike Polinsky and John West.  Don Woolard and Garret Ball had a good tournament capturing the fourth spot.  Another spot back in fifth were the tournament hosts Jerry and Ken Rettke.

Many, many thanks go out to the Rettke family for showing great hospitality to all of the bowlers and their guests the entire weekend.  Also, a special thank you to Kevin Olson of H & R Block McMinnville-Willamina for sponsoring the tournament along with Walnut City Lanes.

Hammer Bowling is a season long sponsor of the Northwest Senior Tour.
