Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the significant differences of selected physical fitness variables between individual games and team games athletes. A group of 30 sportspersons A (Individual games athletes: N=15) and B (Team games athletes=15) of age group 18-25 years were selected from department of physical education (T), Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu, India. It was hypothesized that there may be significant differences with regard to selected physical fitness variables among individual and team games athletes. The between-group differences were assessed by using an independent samples t-test. The level of p0.01 was considered significant. An independent samples t-test revealed that individual games athletes had significantly higher muscular strength, agility, power, speed and cardiovascular endurance (p<0.01) than team games athletes. Further investigations are needed on the above studied variables along with physiological variables to assess relationships among them and with performances in team games and individual games athletes.
