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.



How to screen the film... your local theater


In order to share the film with audiences around the country, we have teamed up with Tugg is a crowdsourcing platform that gives people the ability to bring the movies of their choice to local movie theaters without any upfront costs. Event hosts can use screenings as fundraisers, community engagements, or unique movie events.

Tugg is easy to use! For more on how it works, visit
