ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to compare some physical and physiological features of elite and amateur badminton players. The sample of the study were totally 31 Turkish badminton players in 2010-2011 season; consisting of Youth National male players (n=16, age: 16.8±1.5) and amateur level male players (n=15, age: 16.3±0.8) from Sport High School. After the body composition of players were determined, agility test, sit and reach test, multiple reaction test, hand grip strength test and wingate anaerobic power test were applied to them. “Independent T-test” was applied for comparisons among independent groups. After statistical analyses, it was determined that elite players had higher values in height (cm), agility (second), right hand grip strength (kg) (p≤0.01), body fat percentage and fat free mass (kg) (p≤0.05) than amateur players. As a result, it was seen that the elite and amateur level badminton affected the height, agility, hand grip strength and body composition (lower body fat percentage and higher fat free mass) of players positively.
