Abstract: Endurance and agility support badminton performance. Low endurance and agility are associated with an injury. This study investigated the relationship between endurance, agility, and injury in badminton players. This study was a cross-sectional study involved badminton athletes (n = 26). VO2max was measured by the bleep test, and agility was evaluated by Badminton Agility Test (BAT). Musculoskeletal injury profile was recorded by physical examination and questionnaire. Data were processed on SPSS, and the data were analyzed statistically using Spearman or Pearson correlation test. There is a strong correlation between VO2max and musculoskeletal injury (p<0.01, r=0.72). There is a moderate correlation between agility and musculoskeletal injury (p<0.01, r=0.69). Lower extremities injury dominated the musculoskeletal injury. We conclude that there is a significant correlation between musculoskeletal injury with VO2max, and with agility.
