Granny's Got Game is an inspiring feature-length documentary film about a senior women's basketball team in North Carolina. These fiercely competitive women in their seventies battle physical limitations and social stigma to keep doing what they love.
They started playing 6-on-6 girls’ basketball in the 1950s but stopped after high school as there were no opportunities to keep playing in those days. Now they must learn a new, physical style of play while overcoming the skepticism of their peers. The team has had great success together over the last two decades, winning a multitude of medals in senior games tournaments across the country.
The film follows them for a yearlong season culminating in a nearly disastrous trip to the National Senior Games Championship in Houston, Texas. This heartwarming and uplifting tale of overcoming life’s obstacles to keep doing what you love with the people you care about appeals to all ages and is not just for fans of basketball.
