The subjects were randomly assigned to two equal groups. Group- I (n=20) underwent basketball referees and Group – II (n=20 football referees. The following tests were performed to measure the physical fitness parameters: 110mt test was used to measure the speed endurance, 50 meters run test was used to measure the speed. The data collected from the subjects were statistically analyzed using ‘t’ test to find out whether significant mean difference existed at 0.05level of confidence. The result of the study was significant difference in the speed and speed endurance between the football and basketball referees.
