The Granny Basketball League season typically runs January through May, with games played at various venues and hosted by the home team. Because of travel involved, several games may be played in one day.


Each division (East, West and South) has separate schedules and play games against the other teams in their division. Inter-divisional games may be played, as well. The Iowa State Tournament takes place in June and the National Tournament in July. In addition, Granny Basketball will be a new event in the Kansas Senior Games this fall.


We also have traveled to perform exhibition game fund raisers in Chicago; Honolulu; Jefferson City, Mo.; Lake Charles, La.; Lawrence, Kan.; and many more.


In addition to fund raisers, Granny players are often invited to college games to serve as halftime or pre-game entertainment. We’ve played at the University of Iowa, Iowa State, Drake, Coe, UNI, Mount Mercy, the University of Minnesota, Washburn University and the University of Kansas.



Chicago, Minneapolis, Des Moines, Hawaii, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, and more!
