PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WTXF) - Senior citizens from the Philadelphia Protestant Home invited their friends from Paul’s Run over for a friendly Wii bowling match.
The two senior citizen communities socialized in a friendly but competitive bowling match. Most of the players, like Carol Cherrington from Philadelphia Protestant Home had been practicing for months.
“It is a great thing for seniors to do. The game itself. We can’t bowl, can’t lift the ball, but we can bowl here. It feels like we are bowling,” said Cherrington.
The competition was fierce but Paul’s Run bowler Angie, who used to be a league bowler, had the best score of the day. She carried her team to victory with 247 points at the end of the match.
Although the final score may not be as high as the Paul’s Run score, the members of Philadelphia Protestant Home had them beat in spirit. They cheered each other on despite what the score was.
Philadelphia Protestant Home employee Kathy Nucero was enjoying the day as well.
“This is the first time we had competition with another community. It is so much fun here lots of energy lots of excitement we are just having a great time here today,” said Nucero.
