Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of game specific training and vision training on selected skill performance variables among tennis players. To achieve the purpose of the present study, Forty five male tennis players were randomly selected from Tiruvannamalai district, Tamilnadu, were randomly selected their age ranged between 18 to 25 years. The groups were assigned as Experimental Group I, Experimental Group II and Experimental Group III in an equivalent manner. Experimental Group I was exposed to game specific training, Experimental Group II was exposed to vision training and Experimental Group III was exposed to combined training. The duration of experimental period was 12 weeks. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significance among the mean differences, whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted test was found to be significant, scheffe’s post hoc test was used. In all cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test hypotheses. The combined training had registered significant improvement on selected skill performance variables namely service and forehand drive than the other two experimental groups.
