Dr. R Sevi
To achieve the purpose of the study thirty handball and thirty netball male players were selected randomly during intercollegiate tournament. The data of anthropometric measurements between netball and handball players were collected by using Standard procedure by using non-stretchable tape. The results showed that netball players are significantly better in leg length and arm length then hand ball players. Because they have to execute basket- ting and block skill during the game those skills need good leg length and arm length. In Calf girth, handball players were found more than netball players because handball players have more running movement in game situation and in thigh girth also handball players are superior than basketball players because handball players must use more leg movements during the game.
