Abstract: To get the purpose of the present study thirty (30) male (15 Volleyball and 15 Basketball) subjects were selected randomly from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Haryana and Department of Physical Education, Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak, Haryana who have participated in inter university competition in Volleyball and Basketball. Their age ranged between 18 to 25 years. The test of Differentiation and Rhythm Ability developed by Peter Hirtz in 1958. Differentiation Ability was measure by the Backward Medicine Ball throw test and rhythm was measured by Sprint at the Given Rhythm Test. The tests were designed so that they could be administered by professional and clinicians in the field who lack specialized measurement equipment, training and resources.
To compare differentiation ability and rhythm ability among basketball and handball players independent “t-test” was employed as statistical technique at the 0.05% level of significance. Result shows that there is significant difference in differentiation ability among Volleyball and Basketball players as the obtained “t” value 2.45 is significantly higher than the tabulated “t” value 2.04 but another result shows that there is significant difference in rhythm ability among Volleyball and Basketball players as the obtained “t” value 1.41 is significantly lesser than the tabulated “t” value 2.04.
