The main purpose of the study was to compare the mental toughness in relation to agility and reaction ability among different level of female kho kho playres. Total 90 (ninety) female kho kho players were selected from West Bengal under the district of North 24 Paraganas for the purpose of present study. Out of 90 (ninety) female kho kho players were subdivided into three different group i.e. sub junior level (N30), junior level (N30) and senior level (N30). The age of the subjects ranged between 11-19 years. Random group design was adopted for this study. Mental toughness, agility and reaction ability were considered as the variables for the purpose of the present study. Mental toughness was measured by ‘mental toughness questionnaire’, agility was measured by 4*10 yard shuttle run and reaction ability was measured by ‘Nelson foot reaction time’ test. The collected data were statistically treated on the basis of correlation coefficient with 0.05 level of significance. Further one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was done on three different variables among three different levels of kho kho players. Later the LSD (equivalent to no adjustment) post-hoc test was done on those dimensions in which “F” ratio’s were found to be significant, in order to verify whether the difference really exist or not for which the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence. The result of the present study showed that there were positive relationship was found of different level (sub junior, junior and senior) of kho kho players on mental toughness in relation to agility and reaction time. Further the result observed that significant differences were found in respect of mental toughness, agility and reaction ability among different level of female kho kho players.
