Author(s): Ajay Pal Bhadu and Dr. Poonam Singh

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare speed, agility, anaerobic strength and some anthropometric characteristics of male Basketball and Handball Players. The sample of the study comprised of male Basketball and Handball team players participating in north zone intervarsity tournament (17-24 aged) (n1=24) (n2=24). Within the scope of the study, the following techniques were applied: 30-meter speed test for determining speeds of the players, Illinois agility test for determining agility of the players, Sargent jump test for determining anaerobic strengths of the players, height weight measurement and body-mass index (B.M.I) for determining anthropometric characteristics of the players. The players were informed of the test protocols before the tests and they voluntarily participated in the study. Statistical analysis of the tests was conducted by using independent sample t-test in SPSS 20.00 program. After the tests, it was found that there was a significant differences in favour of Basketball players in speeds and anaerobic strengths (p<0, 05) while there was not any significant difference statistically in agility test (p>0,05). As a result, there was significant difference among values regarding speed, anaerobic strength and anthropometric characteristics of male Basketball and Handball players while there was not a significant difference in agility values.
