The purpose of this study was to construct a new skill test battery and to develop standard norms for Squash players. Initially 6 tests were designed on fundamental skills. A pilot study was conducted on 40 male Squash players from various clubs age ranged from 17 to 20 years. After extensive critical analysis 4 skill tests were finalized. Validity, reliability and objectivity were established on all selected test items. To arrive the final test battery 100 male Squash players were randomly selected from the LNIPE, Gwalior, Noida Stadium, Noida, Mayohall Sports Complex, Allahabad and their age ranged between 17 and 20 years with the mean age of 18.8, ± 1.9 years. The data, which was collected by administering the 4 skill test items i.e. Alternate Parallel Drive from Front Court, Parallel Drive from Back Court (Forehand and Backhand), and Court Run was statistically treated to develop norms for all the test items. The normative scales, namely, the Percentile Scale and 6-Sigma Scale were constructed for the male Squash players. The scores were further classified into five grades i.e. A, B, C, D and E or Excellent, Good, Average, Satisfactory and Poor respectively under normal distribution.
