Relationship between motor abilities and clear skill level of Delhi badminton playersAuthor(s):
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between motor abilities and clear skill level of badminton players for which 60 badminton players (40 boys and 20girls) were selected from various badminton coaching centers of Delhi having age ranged from 13 to 15 years. Motor abilities namely agility, balance, flexibility, explosive power (SBJ&VJ), reaction time, speed, strength were measured by conducting 10 yards shuttle run, Stork balance, bend and reach, standing broad jump (SBJ), Sargent jump(VJ), Nelson hand reaction, 30 meter dash, sit-up tests. Hicks clear skill test were used to assess the badminton skill of the selected subjects. Pearson Product moment coefficient of correlation with significant level at (p<0.05) was used to examine the correlations between smash skill and agility, balance, flexibility, explosive power, reaction time, speed, strength. The analysis of data of boys badminton players revealed that clear skill was positively correlated with the strength (r = 0.299), and explosive power (r = 0.388), whereas agility (r = -0.476) was negatively correlated with the clear skill. No significant correlation was observed between speed, flexibility, reaction time, balance, leg power and clear skill of boys badminton players. The results in the case of girls badminton players shows that the clear skill was positively correlated with flexibility (r = 0.541), leg power (r = 0.596), explosive power (r=0.593), and negatively correlated with the speed (r = -0.381), agility (r= -0.669). On the basis of results no significant correlation was observed between strength, reaction time, balance and clear skill of girls badminton players.Pages: 119-123 | 1307 Views 28 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
