Granny's Got Game

We don't stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.

Granny's Got Game is a documentary film about a senior women's basketball team in North Carolina. These seven fiercely competitive women in their seventies battle physical limitations and skepticism to keep doing what they love.  The film follows them for a year as they compete for another National Senior Games championship.  After two decades together, these women are more than a team...they are a family.

Today is the official start of the National Senior Games in Cleveland!  The basketball competition will not start until next week.  There will be over 10,000 amazing athletes participating in the games - all over the age of 50!  In addition to our favorite "grannies", the Fabulous 70s, there will be lots of women with similar stories competing this year.  Another senior women's basketball team is the Connecticut High Fives starring Sheila McKenna.  This team plays the Fab 70s in Granny's Got Game, so you can see Sheila in action in the film.  Here is an article and video about her from a few years ago in the Boston Globe.   Check it out. 

This year the Connecticut High Fives are in the 70+ age division.  I'll be cheering them on.  Never too old! 



My plan for this blog is to not only give you updates on the film and the Fabulous 70s (stars of the film), but to also share other inspirational stories of people proving we are never too old to do what we love.  Please stay tuned!
