Relationship of anthropometric measurements with the performance of forehand overhead stroke in badminton
Author(s): Benu Madhava Pandey and Dr. T Onima Reddy
Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to determine the relationship of anthropometric measurement with the performance of Forehand Overhead stroke i.e. clear, Smash and Drop in Badminton. The finding of this study would indicate the no relationship of anthropometric parameter to the performance of forehand overhead stroke of badminton players. It should be also helpful in preparing some training programs to develop the forehand overhead stroke of badminton players. For the present study the sample consisted of Ten Male Indian Badminton players (Rank under 50). The age ranged of the subjects ranged Between 22 to 27 years. Subject were selected from Karnataka Badminton association during Yonex sunrise all India senior ranking Badminton Tournament. All the anthropometric measurements were taken with the help of anthropometric kit and performance evaluated through subjective judgment by qualified officials on the basis of three judges rating system. For analysis of data correlation (Pearson Correlation) test was used. The level of significance was set at 0.05 levels. Result of the study revealed that, age, height, weight, upper arm, lower arm, palm, upper leg, lower leg, foot length. Obtained values (.154), (.191), (.077), (.249), (.182), (.151), (.151), (.328), (.269), is less than Tabulated value (.549) therefore it have shown insignificant relationship with performance of clear stroke. Obtained values (.523), (.308), (.231), (.270), (.229), (.297), (.212), (.316), (.199), value is less than Tabulated value (.549) therefore it has shown insignificant relationship with performance of smash stroke. Obtained values (-.163), (.319), (.303), (.252), (.338), (.030), (.318), (.115), (.313), is less than Tabulated value (.549) therefore it has shown insignificant relationship with performance of drop stroke. Anthropometric variable has no significant correlation with the performance of Forehand Overhead stroke i.e. clear, Smash and Drop.
