The purpose of study was to compare physical fitness of handball and basketball players of Jammu University, Jammu and Kashmir state. Total 30 male players (15 players of each game) were randomly selected and their age ranged from 20-25 years. The subjects were regularly practicing and competing in their respective sports. All the subjects were informed about aim and methodology of the study and they volunteered to participate in this study. The selected subjects were tested on physical fitness components such as speed by 50 yard dash, agility by shuttle run. For physiological fitness components the subjects were tested on pulse rate and blood pressure by using digital sphygmomanometer. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The result of the study showed that handball players have greater speed ability then basketball players. However, no significant difference was found between handball and basketball players for the variables of agility, pulse rate and blood pressure.
