"Granny" Basketball Leagues

The Houston Chronicle ran a fun article the other day about women over the age of 50 who are joining seniors-only basketball leagues. The leagues are a way to exercise, socialize and just have fun. Players mentioned not having the chance to play basketball as girls and teenagers, when some were told that it was "unladylike" (most of the women involved were in school prior to Title IX's passage), and discussed how much they enjoyed having the opportunity to play now.
