Age is just a jersey number to these athletes. Teams competed in the Granny Basketball Tournament at Wisconsin high school.
Teams played two games each, with special “Granny Basketball” rules.
There’s no running, no jumping and no body contact.
Two players stay in forward, center or guard positions and are limited to two dribbles per possession.
There is no rule requiring that players have children.
The oldest player in today’s tournament is 87. The team is recruiting, so if you’re a woman over 50 looking to get in on the fun, going to grannybasketball.com.
