Just to JOIN the San Diego Splash, you must be at least 80 years old. The Splash are a team in the San Diego Senior Women’s Basketball Association. They play 3 on 3 half court basketball. Currently, the youngest of these sprightly players is 82, but there are a few women over 90.
In this YouTube ABC News story, there are interviews with some of the ladies as well as shots from their basketball games. These women are lively, dedicated, and love to play. As one of them says, “It keeps me off the streets and out of the bingo parlors.”
And the games they play raise money to help send promising student athletes to sports camps, giving young girls opportunities the Splash teammates didn’t have growing up.
