Abstract: The main purpose of the study was to compare the motor skill performance on selected playing surfaces among field hockey players. Twenty male students, studying in bachelors and masters of physical education at Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education were selected as subjects for this study. The age groups of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 25 years. Harban’s Singh Dribbling and Hitting & D.K Dureha Dribbling and Goal Shooting Hockey Skill Tests were chosen to measure the hockey skill performance. In the present study the above mentioned tests were adopted as criterion measures of hockey skill performance i.e. Dribbling and Hitting & Dibbling and Goal Shooting. The data was collected by administering the Harban’s Singh and D.K Dureha Hockey Skill Tests. Paired t-test was employed to analyze the effect of different playing surfaces on hockey skill ability of hockey players. By using paired t-test it was found that there was no significant difference within the skill ability of hockey players in terms of dribbling and hitting & dribbling and goal shooting when tested on natural grass surface, and artificial turf surfaces.
