Dr. Ekta BhambriAbstract:
The present study was aimed at examining the reaction time and anticipation time of sports persons as these two skills are important aspects of perceptual abilities in sports. Presently very few studies have been conducted to compare reaction time and anticipatory skill of sports persons belonging to contact sports which was boxing and non-contact sports person which is Table Tennis athletes from open and closed skill-dominated sport.
The study was carried out on 120 sports persons which were further divide into 60 boxers and 60 Table tennis players who were divided into 3 groups based on experience and level of sports persons: beginners 0-2 years; 2-4 years and above 4 years. The sports persons were assessed on Reaction Time: Both SVRT & CVRT through the reaction time device to assess their simple visual reaction time & choice visual reaction time (decision making) and anticipation time which was also measured through Basin anticipation timer equipment. The data obtained was analyzed using Mean, S.D, and t test. The results indicate that there was no significant difference on SVRT, CVRT, and Anticipation Time of all the 3 groups of boxers & all the 3 groups of table tennis players. Whereas on SVRT Table Tennis players showed significantly better results as compared to the Boxers. No significant difference was observed on CVRT (Decision Making). Anticipation time results indicate no significant difference among and between the groups. Pages: 101-105 | 279 Views 27 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
