Granny’s Got Game

Grannys Got Game IMGI am looking forward to seeing what looks to be an inspiring documentary about an over-70s senior women’s basketball team from North Carolina.
I’ve seen over-70 and over-75 women’s teams play at the Senior National Games in Houston and Palo Alto and it is quite a sight to behold. Unlike in the Iowa Granny Basketball League, which uses the original rules of the game and doesn’t allow any contact, these women play the faster-moving 3-on-3 game, the same game that the over-50 men and women play at Nationals. There’s plenty of bumping and bruising and boxing out. Growing old gracefully is not the idea. For a very good story on ESPN-W about the women in the documentary, as well as the making of the film, follow this link.
