Abstract: To compare the Physiological Variables and Physical Fitness variables between the National level Basketball and Handball Female Players. To achieve the purpose of this study 30 Basketball and Handball Female players i.e. Basketball (n=15) & Handball (n=15), who participated in the inter college completion organized by Sardar Patel University, Anand, Gujarat, Inida were randomly selected and used as subjects in this study. Age group ranged from 18-25years. The study was taken to pinpoint the Physiological Variables and Physical Fitness variables. Therefore, based on literary evidence and scholar's own understanding the following variables were selected for the purpose of this study: 1) Resting Heart Rate, 2) Resting Respiratory Rate, 3) Strength & 4) Endurance. To test the significance of mean difference between the Basketball and Handball players, statistical technique of‘t’ test was applied. Mean 1.68 and SD 3.85 of Resting Heart Rate of Basketball and Handball female players were respectively 1.67 and 3.00 and the calculated t value 0.63. The Mean and SD of Resting Respiratory Rate of Basketball and Handball female players were respectively 65.11 & 3.62 and 65.77 & 2.57 and the calculated t value 0.57. Strength of the Mean & SD of basketball female players 7.03 &.06 and handball were 6.99 & 0.07, Mean difference 0.03, standard error 0.02 and the calculated t value 1.34; The Mean & SD of Endurance of basketball players and handball female players were respectively 14.01& 0.07 and 14.07 & 0.24 and the calculated t value 0.90. Table the t value shows that in Physiological Variables namely Resting Heart Rate, Resting Respiratory Rate there is no significant difference between basketball and handball female players. When compared to the mean values of both the groups, finally it has been found that basketball players have considerably average than handball female players in Resting Heart Rate, Resting Respiratory Rate, Strength and Endurance.
