Objective: The sole purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between endurance and vo2 max of basketball players. Design of the study: descriptive cum exploratory Methodology: for accomplish the study a total 50 basketball players were randomly selected as sample. The age of the samples were ranged from 18 to 25. To assess the endurance of subjects Cooper 12 minute walk and run test was administered and score was measure in the units of meters. Vo2 max was measured through the values got via Cooper test and put them in a equation to get the vo2 max. To find out the relationship Pearson Correlation was used and the level of significance was set at 0.01. Results: A strong positive correlation with the score of .987 was found between the endurance and vo2 max of selected subjects. Conclusion: endurance is key point in every sports. After the study it has been proved that if a person have a good endurance than his or her vo2 max (maximum oxygen consumption) will also be good.
