Standard tests were used to evaluate the parameters as, Cardiovascular Endurance (Queens College Step Test), Flexibility (Forward Bend and Reach Test) & Agility (4x10 Yards Shutter Run). The results showed that in Cardio-Vascular Endurance no significant differences were found (p<0.05). Similarly, in case of Agility no significant differences were found (p<0.05). And in Flexibility Significant differences were found (*p>0.05). It was concluded that 4-week conditioning programme did increase the flexibility of the Players significantly.
