Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to estimate the dominant handgrip strength and its correlations with selected anthropometric and physiological characteristics in inter-college volleyball players. Three anthropometric characteristics, two body composition parameters, two physical and two physiological characteristics were measured on randomly selected 40 inter-college volleyball players (40 males) aged 18–25 years from inter collage volleyball competition held in Vidyasagar Universities, Paschim Midnapore, West Bengal, India. An adequate number of control (40 males) subjects were also taken from the same place for comparisons. The results indicated statistically significant (p ≤ 0.05-0.01) differences between the male volley ball players and the controls in height, weight, BMI, right handgrip strength, left handgrip strength, %BF (Percent body fat), %LBM (Percent lean body mass), heart rate and VO2 max. It may be concluded that dominant handgrip strength had some strong positive correlations with all the variables studied in inter-college volleyball players.
