Abstract :

The purpose of the study was to find out the differences in mental toughness between Tae-Kwon-Do and Cricket male players of Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya ,Bilaspur(C.G.). Total fifty male players acted as subjects in this study (25 Tae-Kwon-Do, 25 Cricket) of age ranged from 21 to 25, from Guru Ghasidas University, Bilaspur (C.G.). The subjects were randomly selected and were shortlisted through purposive sampling. To analyze mental toughness of the subjects Mental toughness Questionnaire (Dr. Alan Goldberg, 2004) was used. The statistical technique employed for this study was independent't'-test at 0.05 level of significance. Statistical analysis indicates significant difference in mental toughness of Tae-Kwon-Do and Cricket players. Therefore, the hypotheses that there would be no significant difference between mental toughness players have been rejected, though Tae-Kwon-Do players showed higher mean in Concentration and Confidence whereas Cricket players showed higher mean in Reboundability, Pressure handling ability and Motivation. This clearly indicates that Tae-Kwon-Do players are significantly better in Concentration and Confidence than Cricket players. Whereas Reboundability, Pressure handling ability and Motivation were found significantly better in Cricket players than Tae-Kwon-Do players.
