Anxiety is one of the most interesting and important areas of focus in sports psychology and has continued to attract great research interest (Weiss & Gill, 2005). This research attempted to determine the state and trait anxiety of sports and non-sports personnel. To investigate the state and trait anxiety of athletes and nonathletes, we comprised 200 adolescents and divide according to sports and non-sports personnel (100 from each group) and 50 girls and 50 boys were selected from each sports and non-sports groups. Spielberger, Gorsuch, Lushane, Vagg and Jacobs (1983) State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was administered on them. Mainly three conclusions were drawn from the study: 1. The Sports personnel possessed less state and trait anxiety than non-sports personnel. 2. Trait anxiety of sports girls was low as compared to non-sports girls. 3. Sports girls showed less trait anxiety than sports boys.
