Author(s): Vijeta Soni

Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to compare selected physiological and psychological factors between National and International level badminton players, a total of 100 male badminton players were purposively selected to act as subjects for the study. The subjects were selected from all over India in different tournaments/clubs/academies based on their ranking at national and International level. The age of the subjects ranged between 17 to 30 years and the mean age of the subjects was found to be 21 (+SD) years. A significant difference has been found between Neuroticism and the total score of the Personality as the values are found to be 3.021 and 3.876, which are significant at 0.05 level, whereas no significant difference has been found between the National and International level badminton players for rest of the sub variables of personality. A significant difference has been found between Body Mass Index, Diastolic Blood Pressure, Systolic Blood Pressure and Vital Capacity as the values are found to be 4.858, 4.102, 2.690 and 6.979 respectively, which are significant at 0.05 level. From the above points it can be concluded that apart from techniques and tactics the psychological, physiological attributes play an important role in badminton performance. Regular monitoring of these variables can help the young badminton players to know their status and the areas to be improved which can help them to achieve excellence in higher level of competition i.e. although the badminton players having similar quality of techniques and skills, but those who are having better psycho-physiological qualities and optimum fitness level can obviously perform better.
