The aim of this study is to find out the significant differences ofperformance assessment of inter university handball female players in relation to their anthropometric and physical fitness variables. For the purpose of the present study, One Hundred Two (N=102), Female University Level Handball Players between the age group of 18-25 years (Mean � SD: age 23.15�1.98 years, height 176.35�5.17cm, body mass 67.87�7.15kg) were selected. A purposive sampling technique was used to select the subject for the study. The players in the teams who participated in the Inter-University handball women championship of Punjab University Chandigarh, Punjabi university Patiala, Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar, Kurkshetra University Kurkshetra, M.D University Rohtak, Delhi University Delhi, Himachal Pardesh University Shimla and P.A.U University Ludhiana were considered. The results of the regression analysis were used to draw out the equations of the identified anthropometric, motor fitness and motor skill variables. Person's Product Moment Coefficients of Correlation (r) were computed to see the relationship of playing ability with anthropometric, motor fitness and motor skill variables. Coefficient of Variation (C.V.) was also calculated as standard deviation as percent of the arithmetic mean. The results revealed significant differences were found the anthropometric variables namely age, height biacromion width arm length, upper arm length, leg length, calf circumference, sitting height, supra-iliac skin fold were found to be positively significant in relation to the performance of handball players. The motor fitness variables namely speed, agility, power of arm, power of legs, endurance and left handgrip strength were found to be significantly related to the performance of handball players. Dribbling, passing handball throw, dominant hand throwing ability, non dominant hand throwing ability, throwing accuracy and defensive movement motor skill variables were found to be significantly related to the performance of handball players.
