Dr. Manikandan SAbstract:
Badminton is an extremely demanding sport. At an elite level, players are often required to perform at their limits of speed, agility, flexibility, endurance and strength. On top of all of this, players must maintain a high state of concentration in order to meet the tactical/mental demands of dealing with their opponents. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the importance of selected anthropometric measurements, biomotor abilities and skill variables to playing ability of college level badminton players. 40 women badminton players were selected randomly from various departments affiliated to Annamalai University, Tamil Nadu, India. Players who participated in the Annamalai University inter collegiate women badminton tournament during the academic year 2014-2015 were selected as subjects. The age of the subjects ranged from 18 to 25 years. The following anthropometric measurements, biomotor abilities and skill variables were selected for this study. Anthropometric measurements such as weight, height, leg length, arm length, arm circumference, thigh circumference, calf circumference and bio-motor variables such as muscular endurance, shoulder strength, grip strength, speed, explosive power, flexibility, agility and skill performance variables serving, overhead clear shot and playing ability. The predictor variables namely flexibility, speed, arm length, serving and overhead clear shot can be used to predict the badminton playing ability of college men badminton players. The predictor variable selected in the multiple regression equation has high significant positive relationship with the criterion variable i.e., the playing ability. The height and weight of the badminton players are having significant relationship with playing ability of badminton players.Pages: 156-158 | 1182 Views 54 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
