Abstract


The purpose of this study was to assess the cardio-vascular fitness and self-concept of badminton players of low and high performance ability. Thirty male badminton players (fifteen districts level and fifteen state level) were randomly selected for this study. All the players were residing in Lucknow city and their age ranged from 19-25 years. Data on cardio-vascular fitness of the subjects were collected with the help of Harvard Step Test. For measuring the self-concept, a questionnaire prepared by Dr. G. P. Sherry was used. To compare the cardio-vascular fitness and self-concept of badminton players “t-ratio” was employed and the level of significance was set at 0.05. On the basis of the results of the study, high performance level badminton players had significantly high cardio-vascular fitness than those of low performance level badminton players, where as in the dimension of self-concept significant difference was not found between them.
