However, no significant differences were found between the both groups for the variables: Bicondylar Humerus Diameter, Wrist Diameter, Bicondylar Femur Diameter, Forearm Circumference, Thigh Circumference, Subscapular skinfold and Suprailliac skinfold. It can be concluded that Volley ballers had greater lengths whereas Footballers had greater diameters and skinfold scores.
