All of them are “ladies of a certain age” who enjoy a “gentle” game of basketball, dressed in an attire not seen since the early days of girls’ basketball – blouses and bloomers.

Among the faces of the line-up is a familiar one – Boscobel High School’s Cindy Anderson, the family and consumer science teacher.
Cindy Anderson knew nothing of Granny Basketball before January. Oddly, it was a trip to WalMart that brought it into her life. She ran into a friend, who told her she would be participating.
