Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to find out the differences in anthropometric characteristics between inter university and inter collegiate volleyball players. For this study, forty eight male volleyball players (Inter University level, N1=24 and Inter Collegiate level, N2=24) of age ranging from 18-24 years were selected as subjects from different colleges under Vidyasagar University, West Bengal. The purposive sampling technique was used to select the subjects. All subjects were assessed of their height, weight, body mass index, arm length, upper arm length, forearm length, leg length, upper leg length, lower leg length, upper arm circumference, fore arm circumference, chest circumference, thigh circumference, calf circumference, elbow diameter, shoulder diameter, hip diameter and knee diameter. Data was analyzed using SPSS, (Version 20.0). The level of significance chosen was 0.05. To compare between the mean scores of inter university and inter collegiate of the both groups Independent Sample t-test was applied. The independent samples t-test revealed that inter university volleyball players had significantly higher height (p<0.05), weight (p<0.05), arm length (p<0.05), forearm length (p<0.05), leg length (p<0.05) and lower leg length (p<0.05) than inter collegiate volleyball players. The inter university volleyball players also had significantly greater upper arm circumference (p<0.05), forearm circumference (p<0.05), thigh circumference (p<0.05) and calf circumference (p<0.05) than inter collegiate volleyball players. The inter university volleyball players had significantly wider elbow diameter (p<0.05), shoulder diameter (p<0.05) and knee diameter (p<0.05) than inter collegiate volleyball players. It is concluded that there were significant differences between inter university and inter college volleyball players with regard to anthropometric features. Inter university players showed better anthropometric measurements in compared to inter collegiate volleyball players of Vidyasagar University, West Bengal.
