Abstract: Background Many daily functions and sporting events such as wrestling, tennis, football, basketball, and baseball require high activity levels of the flexor musculature of the forearm and hand. These are the muscles involved in grip strength. Tennis is a dynamic sport played with a racket and a ball. Tennis is also one of the sports that need, besides balance and coordination skill, characteristics such as strength, endurance, speed and flexibility. Strength is required in muscles and joints both for performance (ball velocity) enhancement and to reduce injuries. In tennis, eye hand coordination is necessary for ball control, speed, and rapidity to react on environmental changes, agility, and reaction. Hence the grip strength & hand eye coordination plays a significant role in ultimate performance in sports. So the purpose of the study is to find out if there is any correlation between grip strength and hand eye coordination with performance in adolescent tennis players. Aim To study correlation between hand grip strength and hand eye coordination with performance in adolescent tennis players. Methodology The study design was correlation in nature. Total of 30 subjects of age group 13-16 years, who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were selected for study. The subject were asked to performed grip strength measurement using Jamar dynamometer and hand eye coordination score by demonstrating hand eye coordination test and technical effectiveness % by demonstrating field test for performance. Karl pearsons correlation coefficient was used for data analysis. Result The result shows that the hand eye coordination was significantly correlated with (r =0.384, p=0.036) performance of adolescent tennis players. Conclusion With the result it concluded that there is significant correlation between hand eye coordination and performance of adolescent tennis players. Grip Strength, Hand Eye Coordination And Performance.
