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.
