ABSTRACT: The study investigated the impact of imagery training on the acquisition of specific skills in shuttle badminton. Imagery training involved mental rehearsal and visualization exercises, allowing players to mentally simulate game situations, refine their techniques, and enhance their confidence. The results demonstrated a significant improvement in skill acquisition among the experimental group that underwent imagery training. Statistical analysis, employing the t-ratio, provided robust evidence of this improvement. The experimental group exhibited notable progress in executing key badminton skills compared to the control group, who did not receive imagery training. This finding underscores the effectiveness of imagery training as a valuable tool in shuttle badminton skill development. The mental practice and visualization techniques employed during training can complement physical training, resulting in enhanced performance, increased self-assuredness, and better adaptability during actual gameplay. The study's outcomes highlight the potential for incorporating imagery training into the training regimen of shuttle badminton players to help them reach their full potential on the court. Data analyzed through Paired‘t ‘test. Level of Significance chosen was 0.05. After the 45 days training, Experimenter found all 30 in experimental group have showed improvement in than control group.
