Combined effects of SAQ and PETTLEP imagery training: A study on the learning process of new skills among novice tennis players
Author(s): Nafih Cherappurath and Dr. M Elayaraja
The study was aimed to enhance the learning of the new skills among the novice tennis players through three different training interventions (SAQ training, PETTLEP imagery and combined PETTLEP imagery and SAQ training). A total of 40 novice tennis players were admitted based on the MIQ-R (Movement Imagery Questionnaire- Revised) scores and participated the entire training programs. The investigator made four different groups based on training programs which included a control group and subjects were equally (n=10) divided in to all. After 12 weeks training all subjects had tested their ground stoke and volley performance according to AAHPERD Tennis Test manual. The statistical procedure of ANOVA reveals that, all the experimental groups had improved significantly from pre-test to post-test and combined group had improved more significantly (p<0.05) than the PETTLEP imagery and SAQ group. However, there was no significant difference found among the PETTLEP imagery and control group during volley performance. Hence, the study suggests that combined group is more beneficial to novice tennis players during skill learning phase.
