Competition anxiety level was the criterion measure in this study. Competition anxiety was measured by Illinois Competition Anxiety Test Questionnaire (1977). Mean and standard deviation were used as descriptive statistics and t-test was computed to find out the significance between two means. All calculations were done by the standard statistical procedure. The present study considers 0.05% level of significance. The result revealed anxiety level for defensive position which was higher than that of offensive position of handball player. However, the significance of difference of competition anxiety for these two different position players in handball was not statistically significant. From above findings it can be said that there was no significant difference in the competition anxiety between defensive and attacking position of handball players.
