Effect of Table Tennis Trainings on Certain Physical and Physiological Parameters in Children Aged 10-12

Murat Taş, Ahmet Sinanoğlu


In the research it was aimed to examine the effects of basic table tennis trainings, which were implemented on girls aged 10-12 for 16 weeks, on certain physical and physiological parameters.

A total of 40 students, as randomly selected 20 test groups and 20 control groups at an age range of 10-12 participated in the research. These students were first applied pre-test measurement, and final test measurement was performed following application of basic table tennis trainings for 16 weeks.

Statistical analysis of data was performed using SPSS 20.0 statistical package program. Mann Whitney U test was used in comparison of two variable groups, and the result being p<0.05 was considered significant when examined statistically.

Statistical differences between measurements of body fat percentage, flexibility, vertical jumping, standing long jump, 30 m sprint, anaerobic strength, right and left hand grip strength, visual and audio reaction times, resting heart rate, and VC, FVC, FEV and FEV1 were found to be significant in favour of the test group (p<0.05). No statistically significant differences occurred between the two groups in height, body weight, body-mass index, maxVo2, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure values (p<0.05).

Consequently, it was observed that the table tennis trainings, which were performed for 16 weeks, provided positive contributions to certain physical and physiological properties of girls aged 10-12, and improved them.
