Abstract

This study aimed to compare balance performance, agility, eye-hand coordination between amateur tennis players and individuals doing recreational sports. In the research, an amateur tennis club, who has been playing tennis for at least 3 years and playing active tennis; ten male tennis players with an average age of 18.40±0.50 years, an average height of 175.30±3.56 cm, an  average body weight of 70.00±3.57 kg, and an  average body fat percentage of 22.10±1.25%, participated in recreational and recreational physical activities; Ten male university students with an average age of 18.80±0.63 years, an average height of 163.0±33.8 cm, an average body weight of 69.8±2.62 kg, and an average body fat percentage of 22.60±1.17% participated voluntarily. In the study, Y Balance test, Hexagonal test, Eye-hand coordination test were applied. In the analysis, the differences between the normally distributed variables were analyzed using the independent sample t-test, and the differences between the non-normally distributed variables were analyzed with the Mann-Whitney U test. Statistical significance level was accepted as p<0.05. The effect sizes of the differences were calculated according to Cohen's d. Obtained results; no significant difference was found between the balance values between the groups (p>0.05), it was determined that there was a significant difference in agility and eye-hand coordination reaction time between the groups (p<0.05). Among the factors affecting the sportive performance of amateur tennis players, it is seen that agility and eye-hand coordination values are effective compared to the recreational group, while balance is not. In summary, amateur tennis players should be compared with more performance tests.
