MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of strength training on motoric characteristics of young male tennis players. A total of 40 players of Tennis Club Sportsmen voluntarily participated in the study out of which n=20 were experimental group and n=20 were control group. The experimental group practiced 8 weeks of strength training in addition to tennis training. However, the control group practiced just tennis training. Tall stature, bodyweight, vertical jump, 10 meters sprint and grasping tests were applied to the experimental and control groups before and after the training period. The differences between some performance variables of the experimental and control groups are evaluated with independent samples t-test. Level of significance is taken as 0,05. The experimental group’s posttest values of vertical jump, 10 meters sprint and grasping forces are found to be higher than the control group’s posttest values (p<0,05). In conclusion it is seen that strength training, which is having made to young tennis players, plays an important role in the development of physical performances of players.
