An anthropometric measurement has wide applications as one of the essential parameters consisting of the selected diagnostics of any game or sport. The anthropometric indices aided in evaluating potentiality for athletic performance. International sports performance in various sports and games are influenced by many factors such as level of physical, physiological, anthropometric measurements and psychological abilities. In volleyball, technical and tactical skills, anthropometric characteristics and individual physical performance capacities are most important factors that contribute to the success of a team in competitions. The study was to know the influence of selected anthropometric measurements such as height, leg length, thigh girth and calf girth on leg power of inter university volley ball players. The purpose of the study forty inter University volleyball players were randomly selected during inter university tournament and standardized tests were used to collect the anthropometric measurements and leg power tests. Data was collected on height, Leg length Thigh girth, calf girth and leg power. The collected data was analyzed by using Carl Pearson co-efficient of correlation statistical technique was used to know the influence of selected anthropometric measurements on leg power of inter university volley ball players. The relationship of selected anthropometric measurements on leg power of volley ball men players. There is a significant relationship between power and calf girth of volleyball players when ‘r’ value is tested at 0.05 level of significance. But the’ r value of rest of the selected anthropometric measurements shows a positive correlation with leg power.
