The objective of the present study was to compare the selected flexibility and fat percentage variables of the male Volleyball and Basketball Players of Western Uttar Pradesh. 26 male Volleyball and Basketball Players who had represented Chaudhary Charan Singh University in the inter- university Championships were taken as subjects. To accomplish the objectives of the study six flexibility components namely shoulder flexibility, elbow flexibility, wrist flexibility, trunk flexibility, knee flexibility, ankle flexibility and fat percentage component were measured using steel stick, measuring tape, goniometer and portable sits and reach bench and Slaughter et al.’s (1988) population specific body fat percentage mathematical equation. It was hypothesised that there would be a significant difference in the flexibility and fat percentage components of university Volleyball and Basketball players. The collected data was analysed applying’s’ test and the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence. The results showed that the university team Volleyball and Basketball players had significant difference on the wrist flexibility characteristic only whereas both the groups were found to be having nearly identical shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle flexibility features. Moreover, significant difference was found between the two groups on the fat percentage component. Hence, the directional hypothesis was partially rejected and partially accepted.
