ABSTRACT: The main purpose of the study was to compare the study of competition anxiety, depression and stress among women judo players and other combat game players among the female students. For the purpose of the study, 40 college women will be selected from Tamilnadu State and National level players (Judo Players & Other Combat Game Players). The subjects were divided into two equal groups consisting of twenty (n =20) subjects each, from the randomly selected participants. The psychological variables like Anxiety, Depression, and Stress were measured through the standardized questionnaire. The DASS questionnaire was used to evaluate the 3 items simultaneously. 3 - Self-report scales are included in the (DASS-21 items) Depression, the results obtained ‘t’ value of depression and stress was 0.994 and 1.6505 was lesser than the required ‘t’ value of 2.101 to be significant at 0.05 level. Hence, it was proved that there was no significant difference between the groups and the hypothesis was accepted at 0.05 level. The obtained ‘t’ value of 2.4479 was lesser than the required ‘t’ value of 2.101 to be significant at 0.05 level. Hence, it was proved that there was a significant difference between the groups in anxiety and the hypothesis was rejected at 0.05 level. Athletes are susceptible to a variety of mental health problems that may be related to both sport-related and non-sport-related causes, according to data collected in this study about the prevalence of psychological discomfort in athletes. Additionally, the findings revealed that the analyzed mental health issues were dependent on Judo and Other Combat Game Players. Females were discovered to be a vulnerable subsample, particularly amateur female athletes rather than top ones.
