Visual and auditory reaction times were measured by Newtest 1000 reaction timer and Stability Platform Lafayette (16020) was used to test dynamic balance of players. The data was analyzed by using “descriptive statistic ” and “Pearson Product Correlation” in SPSS 14 package program.The average reaction times of subjects for right and left hand were 212.91 ± 25.92 msec and 225.33 ± 33.49 msec respectively.
