Abstract: The objectives of the study were to analyzed the injury occurrences & sports achievements in Kabaddi players of various teams in Coimbatore district. This study may help to find out the injury characteristics, sports performance and the underlying causes and its effects among Kabaddi men players. Information on injuries were collected from 35 Kabaddi players who were participating in district, zonal, inter collegiate and state level competitions, a total of 18 players were participated in regional level and 17 players were participated in state level competitions, the age of the players ranges from 17 to 24 years. IOC - injury surveillance questionnaire developed by Junge et al., (2015). Results shows that the most common occurrence of injuries are sprains on the ankle, knee, and shoulder joints. Most sports injuries happen during games and tournaments and the chance of getting injured is more when playing in artificial mats then compared to natural surface. It is also evident that the least number of players consult a physiotherapist or undergo a proper rehabilitation therapy after the injury. It was concluded that in Kabaddi, players were injured due to not doing proper warming up exercises, not using the correct technique, insufficient knowledge about scientific procedures, and inadequate use of equipment. Regarding all these factors, more knowledge is required for the players, coaches, trainers, and organizers.
