The purpose of the study was to compare of selected anthropometric measurement of Badminton and Table-Tennis player of Sardar Patel University, Anand, Gujarat, India. To achieve the purpose of this study 60 Badminton and Table-Tennis Female players i.e. Badminton (n=30) & Table-Tennis (n=30), who participated in the inter college completion organized by Sardar Patel University, Anand, Gujarat, Inida were randomly selected and used as subjects in this study. Age group ranged from 18-25years. Each athlete was tested for various anthropometric measurements necessary for estimation of body weight, height, sitting height, Arm Length and Leg Length. A set of anthropometric measurements, which included body weight, height, sitting height, Arm length & leg length were taken into consideration for anthropometric measurements. Weighing scale, anthropometric rod and measuring tape were used for the measurements. To test the significance of mean difference between the Badminton and Table-Tennis players, statistical technique of ‘t’ test was applied. Badminton game have depicted somewhat higher mean value for height, Arm Length & Leg length than Table-Tennis game and similarly, the Table-Tennis game have shown higher mean value for Body weight and sitting height as compared to Badminton game. But none of such mean differences were found to be significant. So, it may be interpreted that in case of Anthropometric measurements namely; height, Arm Length, Leg length weight and sitting height there existed no significant differences between the Badminton and Table-Tennis games. Hence, the null Hypothesis is accepted.Pages: 69-71 | 1510 Views 88 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
