Abstract: The main purpose of the present study was to compare the agility (zigzag run) among selected national level male football, basketball and hockey players. To achieve the objective of the study, sixty (N=60) national level male players (twenty for each game) from Chandigarh were selected as subjects by using purposive sampling technique. The age of the subjects ranged between 19-25 years. To assess agility of the subjects, 16” x 10” zigzag run was used. To find out the significance differences among the selected national level male football, basketball and hockey players, one way ANOVA was used with the help of SPSS software. Further Scheffe’s post- hoc test was applied to see the direction and significance of differences where ‘F’ ratio was found significant. The level of significance was set at .05. Significant difference was obtained on agility among national level male football, basketball and hockey players. Football players demonstrated significantly better than basketball players and hockey players on agility.
