The purpose of the study was to compare the cardio-respiratory endurance among the participants of individual games, team games and health clubs. The youth of Lucknow district who had either represented university in any individual or team game for two years or participated in health club activities for two years were chosen as subjects for this study. Their age group ranged from 20-25 years. Eight individual games, Eight team games and Eight health clubs were selected for the study. The subjects comprised of 48 sportsmen from each discipline making a total of 144. Six sportsmen from each individual games, team games and health clubs were selected for the study, using random sampling technique. To assess the cardio-respiratory endurance 600yard run/walk test was employed. The elapsing time from the starting signal until the runner completed the 600yard distance was recorded in minutes and seconds. To compare the participants of selected groups in the dimension of cardio-respiratory endurance analysis of variance was used. Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied were ever f-ratio was found significant. Level of significance was kept at 0.05level of confidence. Based on the findings of the study it was concluded that participants of team games have better cardio-respiratory endurance then the participants of the individual games and health clubs. Whereas significant difference was not found between the participants of individual games and health clubs.
