Author(s): Dr. L Santosh Singh, Sumit Kr Thapa, Dr. Mantu Baro and Dr. O Jiten Singh

Abstract: The present study was conducted to examine the mental toughness between selected outdoor and indoor games athletes. To obtain data for this study, the investigators had selected one hundred and twenty (N=120) male university level athletes of 19 to 25 years of age group to act as subjects. They were further divided into two groups which includes sixty (n= 60) outdoor game athletes and sixty (n=60) indoor game athletes of various games and sports. The purposive sampling technique was used to obtain the required data. To measure the level of mental toughness of the subjects, the mental toughness battery constructed by Goldberg (1998) was administered. The‘t’ test was applied to find out the significant differences between selected outdoor and indoor games athletes. To test the hypotheses, the level of significance was set at 0.05. The results revealed significant differences between selected outdoor and indoor games athletes on the sub-variables i.e. motivation and overall mental toughness. However, no significant differences were noticed with regard to the sub-variables i.e. reboundability, ability to handle pressure, concentration and confidence.
