It is also associated with feelings of restlessness, fatigue, concentration problems, and muscle tension. The sample for the study consists of 150 Kabaddi players, 150 Kho-Kho players and 150 Hockey players those who have participated in the Inter District Tournaments of Maharashtra State. The Standardized Sinha’s Comprehensive Anxiety Test is used for the study. It was found the Hockey players are having high anxiety than Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players because Hockey players have to run throughout the ground continuously in order to make goal to their opponent. They have to compete under the Psychological stress, anxiety, feelings of fear, and physical as well as psychological fatigue. Whereas in Kabaddi and Kho-Kho the court area is comparatively smaller than Hockey and hence Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players do not required such physical and psychological strategies as Hockey players do required.
