Rahul Kanojia and Dr. Amar Kumar
In hockey a player needs strong wrists, in order to pass the ball at different speed as well as to deceive the opponents with sudden wrist movements in either direction. 30 male hockey students from each college and district level were randomly selected as subjects for this study, aged (18 to 25 years). The data were collected under natural environmental conditions in evening session. Grip strength was measured by grip dynamometer. Grip strength of both hand were measured. Recording to the nearest of half kilogram from the dial of the calibrated dynamometer was be carefully record. To analyze the collected data, descriptive data and t-ratio were applied to grip strength of college and district level hockey players. Graphical representation of mean comparison of right and left hand Grip Strength is given figure no. 01 and 02 respectively. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Findings of the study revealed that there was a significant difference found in college and district level hockey players in terms of right and left hand grip strength because the calculated ‘t’ value (7.524*) and (6.477*) respectively are significantly higher than the required ‘t’ value (2.00).
