Abstract:
The investigator after a thorough study on the subject matter was motivated to undertake a study entitled “A Study on Sleep Quality Index of Male and Female Swimmers of Delhi. The objective of the Study was to compare between male and female swimmers of Delhi in regard to selected sleep quality index variables. The study was delimited to 40 swimmers age ranged from 14 to 21 years (25 male swimmers and 15 female swimmers of Delhi) state level Swimmers as Sample.
