Granny Basketball in Dubuque

DUBUQUE, IA: For most people, sports take the bench after college, but not for these women. Bev Brewer, the founder and captain of the Dubuque Court side Cuties, has been in the game now for the past four years. She thought of the idea when she saw a video of an 85 year old woman make a lay up on a television show. She has recruited 13 players to the team and has hopes of making another team. To participate in Granny basketball you have to be at least 50 years of age. You use only a third of the court, you can only dribble twice, and you aren’t allowed to run or jump. If you are interested in joining, or wanting to know more information you can go to http://www.grannybasketball.com/index.html or contact Bev Brewer at b.brew@live.com.
