Özet

The purpose of this study was to compare anthropometric proportional relations and grip strength of elite badminton and tennis players. The sample of this study consists of totally thirty elite tennis and badminton players who participated the study voluntary. Stata 11 package program was used in the study to analyze the data. Nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test and parametric t- test was used for variables As a result of this study, a statistically significant difference between badminton and tennis players is observed for the variables the proportion of forearm/wholearm and proportion of bitrochanteric diameter/biacromial diameter (p<0.05). Whereas the proportion of forearm/whole arm in badminton players, the proportion of bitrochanteric diameter/biacromial diameter in tennis players were higher. We may conclude that badminton players have an advantage of force required in stroking, which is consistent with leverage principle, due to frequent use of forearm in Badminton whose players have shorter forearm lengths than tennis players. The dominant grip strengths of badminton players were significantly lower (p<0.05) compared to tennis players and a statistically significant difference between badminton and tennis players is observed. The lower dominant grip strength of badminton players than tennis players can be dedicated to difference in weights of the racquets used.
