Abstract

This study was conducted on a total of 16 female students studying at the 1st grade of Bingöl University, School of Physical Education and Sports. Students participated in the study voluntarily and divided into 8 experimental groups (EG) and 8 control groups (CG). In the study, height, body weight, dominant hand grip strength, non-dominant hand grip strength, back strength, leg strength, 30-meter speed running, flexibility measurement, vertical jump, long jump tests were applied to the experimental and control groups as pre-test and post-test. Statistical analysis of the study was performed using SPSS 22.0 program. The analysis of the data in-group and intergroup measurements were performed by MANOVA and p < 0.05 was taken as statistical significance level. While there was no statistically significant difference between the experimental group and the control group in terms of pre-test measurement results, there was a statistically significant difference in body fat percentage, body weight, body mass index value in favor of EG in physical measurements after 8-week training. Also, in terms of performance characteristics, according to the post-test measurement results, the differences between experimental and control group dominant hand strength and non-dominant hand strength, 30 m speed average was significantin favor of EG, and again the difference between long jump and vertical jump tests was statistically significant in favor of EG in final test measurement results. As a result, it can be said that 8-week basic badminton training has positive effects on female students both physically and physiologically.
