AUTHOR(S): Rayees Ahmad Bhat and Dr. Sunil Dudhale
The aim of the present study was to find out the effect of some selected physical characteristics on playing ability of male volleyball players. To conduct the study 96 national male volleyball players were selected. The selected subjects were part of teams which qualified for quarterfinals in senior national volleyball championship. The average age of the selected national male volleyball players was 27.92 years. Volleyball playing ability was based on comprehensive rating of three judges. The physical characteristics namely speed, explosive strength of legs, agility and flexibility was assessed with the help of 50 meter run, standing broad jump, 4x10 meter shuttle run and sit and reach test respectively. Linear regression explained 40.8% variance in overall data on volleyball playing ability. Agility has significantly higher impact on volleyball playing ability followed by explosive strength of legs then speed and lastly flexibility. The non-significant t-ratio for flexibility also denotes its minimal impact on volleyball playing ability. It was concluded that physical characteristics in the form of agility, explosive strength of legs and speed are major contributors in playing ability of national male volleyball players.
