Reactions towards frustrating situation by elite and non-elite male kabaddi players was comparatively examined in this research. 100 male elite and 100 sub-elite kabaddi players were selected as sample in the present investigation. The average age of elite male kabaddi players was 20.97 years while that of sub-elite male kabaddi players was 22.17 years. The selected kabaddi players from elite group participated in national championship while sub-elite group consists of state level kabaddi players. Frustration to Reaction Scale prepared by Dixit and Shrivastava (2012) was used to assess frustration tolerance of selected subjects. Results indicate that modes of frustration i.e. aggression, fixation, and resignation is significantly higher in non-elite kabaddi players as compared to elite male kabaddi players but no significant difference was observed in frustration regression between two groups. It was concluded that elite kabaddi players cope with frustrating situation more efficiently as compared to non elite kabaddi players.
