Anxiety is needed for peak performance. It is important for the coach to check such players who become over anxious which may affect their performance. Without certain level of anxiety, there cannot be competitive performance. Competition and aggression are twins, aggression is more boisterous games, may help performance because it arouses players overly to put in harder effort, and do and die for the success of the team. The purpose of the present study was to investigate and compare the anxiety and aggression level among the male and female players. A total 120 players (60 males and 60 females) were randomly selected from the various colleges affiliated to different universities of Punjab. Aggression was measured by using the AGG questionnaire constructed by Dr. G L Pati (1976). Anxiety among the subjects was measured by using the Sports Competition Anxiety Test (SCAT) constructed by Rainer Martens (1990). The results revealed that the male players had significantly greater aggression (p<0.05) as compared to the female players. The female players were found have significantly higher anxiety level (p<0.01) when compared to male players. In conclusion, the male players were more aggressive whereas female players were more anxious.
