Do you have mad Wii Sports skills? A Wii remote bowling arm that rivals those of real world professionals? Does the idea of winning things excite you?

If you said “yes” or nodded your head with restrained enthusiasm at any of these questions, you should check out the Wii Championships in Melbourne’s Federation Square. Activities will run between 10AM and 5PM on July 5 & 6, with daily champions receiving a Wii and five games. 500 Wii backpacks are also available for keen entrants.

As an aside, the ACMI’s Game On exhibition ends on July 13, so if you do head down, be sure to check this out while you have the chance.

Full release after the jump.

Get down to the Wii Championships this weekend – Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 July – at Federation Square Melbourne to put your Wii Sports skills to the test and win great Nintendo prizes!

You’ll also have the chance to compete in Wii Sports tennis and Wii Sports bowling against Channel Nine personalities Kelly Landry (Getaway), Shura Taft and Georgia Sinclair (KidsWB).

Each day a Wii, and five Wii games will be up for grabs for the daily champion, plus the first 500 entrants per day will receive a Wii back pack!

The Wii Championships celebrate Nintendo’s sponsorship of the Game On exhibition, located at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI). The Game On exhibition which is open daily, will close Sunday 13 July.
