This study, which was applied to determine the balance and body fat percentage of elite futsal players and to compare them with the sedentary people, consisted of totally 49 people; 12 elite futsal players from Gazi University, 12 elite futsal players from Middle East Technical University and 13 sedentary people from Police Academy.

The data obtained from the study were analyzed in SPSS 19 by using Kruskal Wallis and Pearson correlation tests and the significance level was accepted as p≤0.05. There was no significant difference between the balance values of athletes and sedentary people. The body fat percentage levels of athletes were lower than the levels of sedentary people and besides, there was a positive correlation between the weight and height values of athletes and the weight and body fat percentage of sedentary people.

In this study, some structural differences of athlete and sedentary groups may be the cause of indifference of balance ability between groups.
