The purpose of the study was to compare the effect of different recovery programmes on selected physiological parameters. For the study 08 district level male basketball players aged between 18-23 year, were randomly selected from Birbhum, WB, India. All the subjects were randomly divided in to four groups and each group had two subjects. Experimental Group-I for Massage (MG), Experimental Group-II for Cold Bath (CBG), Experimental group-III for slow stretching Group (STG) and Control group (CG). Three experimental groups were given three different recovery programmes for ten (10) min immediately after the full period basketball match whereas control group not received any recovery training programme except their daily routine. The subjects on first day played a full period basketball match for 40 min thereafter the Pre-test data was collected immediately after the match. Then on second day the subject again played a full length basketball match and immediately after the match, recovery programmes were applied and then the post test data was collected immediately after the recovery programmes. Blood pressure and VO2max were measured as the physiological variables of the study to analyze the data descriptive statistics and the analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA) at 0.05 level of significance was applied. The result revealed that there was a insignificant difference in systolic and diastolic blood pressure and VO2max among experimental groups (massage group, cold bath group& slow stretch group) and control group as the calculated ‘F’ value for systolic & diastolic blood pressure and VO2max was insignificant because p-value associated with these are 0.309 & 0.720 and 0.0475 respectively which were found greater than 0.05. As the calculated ‘F’ value was found insignificant at 5% level a no post hoc comparison test was applied.
