Sports are an important part of the society and an integral feature of everyday life. Sports and Physical Education play an important role in human development. Games and other outdoor activities, properly planned and executed, promote social harmony, discipline and increased productivity (Coakley and White 1992) support this notion as they suggest that, “Individual decisions to participate in physical activity are shaped by a complex dynamic, in which economic factors, class and gender, parental and peer influences, leadership, and location intersect”. The purpose of the study was to analyze the socio-economic status of Ranni Channamma University intercollegiate Volleyball and Kabaddi players.

The response rate was hundred percent because the investigator visited competition place personally to collect the information.
