Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare the Athletic Coping Skills of FIDE Rated Tournament Chess Players in Kerala, India. 180 Tournament playing Chess Players were selected as the subjects for the study. FIDE International Rating is used in Chess to calculate an estimate of the Chess playing strength of a player. The subjects under the study were equally assigned to six classes based on their FIDE International Ratings. The six Classes are given below: Class A- Players with the Rating of 2100 and above; Class B- Players with the Rating between 1900 and 2099; Class C- Players with the Rating between 1700 and 1899; Class D- Players with the Rating between 1500 and 1699; Class E- Players with the Rating between 1200 and 1499; Class F- Players with the Rating between 1000 and 1199. The Athletic Coping Skills Inventory (ACSI) developed by Smith et al. (1994) was used to measure the Athletic Coping Skills of the subjects under the study. ANCOVA& Scheffe’s Post Hoc test were used to determine the difference between the different Classes under the study.
