Abstract: The present study aimed at for the collection of the required data, 40 female Kabaddi players were selected as subjects (n = 40). The study was restricted to Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts and also included players who have participated in intercollegiate, inter-university, and district championships in the last 5 years. The subject’s age ranges between 16-25 years. The gathered data from subjects will be statistically treated, with mean, standard deviation and standard variance values being used to portray the data using appropriate table. All the statistical treatment was carried out by using advanced Microsoft Excel at a significance level of 0.05. After statistical analysis, the study discovered that the same type of joint had varying ROM, which could have an impact on players' training. Because of the nature of their joints and surrounding tissues, females have more ROM than males. To perform sound skills in the game, Kabaddi players typically require a high level of flexibility at the shoulder and hip joints.
