Dr. Deepak PaswanAbstract:
The study basically focussed on the comparison of various important kinanthropometric variables that play a major role in the performance of badminton and tennis all India inter-varsity players. A total of 20 players were taken for the purpose of study from L.N.I.P.E Gwalior, who represented in all India inter-varsity tournaments in badminton and tennis respectively. There were a total of 10 subjects each for both the games, the variables like age, weight, height, skinfold and girth measurements were taken for the purpose of the study, the body fat percentage and body density were also measured to get an overview of their body composition. To compute the data independent sample t-test was used at 0.05 level of significance, there was a significance difference found between the weight (.023*) and the girth measurement of neck (.005*) when compared at 0.05 level of significance, other variables showed insignificant relationship with each other. The mean of body fat percentage of badminton and tennis player was 17.80 and 19.13 respectively whereas the body density was 1.058 and 1.055 respectively.Pages: 211-213 | 208 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
