Comparison of Static and Dynamic Balance Parameters of Athletes in Tennis and Badminton Sports
The purpose of this study is to compare static and dynamic balance characteristics of athletes in tennis and badminton branches. As the study group, 13 athletes playing tennis at the elite level at Istanbul Avrupa Yakası Tennis Club and 13 athletes engaged in badminton branch, 26 athletes in total, participated in our study voluntarily. Height, Weight, Body Mass Index, Static and Dynamic Balance measurements for volunteers were made. Data was recorded by the programme named SPSS 22.0. One-Sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used for normal distribution of data. Unpaired t test was used for comparison between branches. The value of p<0.05 was considered significant. No significant difference was found for parameters of age, height, weight, BMI, dynamic balance (p>0,05) whereas a significant difference was found for the parameter of Static balance (p<0,05). As a result, it was found that a number of physical and motoric characteristics of athletes engaged in tennis and badminton sports were similar. It is supposed that physical and motoric features which are not similar arise due to different field sizes and materials of different characteristics used in tennis and badminton sports.
