Objective: The Objective of the study was find out the relationship of selected anthropometric variables and handball playing ability.
Procedure: To achieve the purpose of the study, total of eighty Interuniversity hand ball men players are selected as a subjects. The anthropometric variables such as weight, arm length, forearm girth, thigh girth, elbow diameter, wrist diameter, and ankle diameter independent variables and handball playing ability was selected as dependent variable for this study. The selected independent variables were tested by using standardized test items were tested by using gullick tape. Here the weight measured by weighing machine, The playing ability of the subjects was measured by the panel of three expert judges during Interuniversity competition on five point scale, on the basis of their all round performance. The average of three judges was considered as final score. To determine the relationship between dependent variable and independent variable Pearson product moment correlation was used.
Findings: The results of the present study indicate weight, arm length, forearm girth, thigh girth, elbow diameter, wrist diameter, and ankle diameter are playing an important role for handball playing ability.
