The Effect of Different Learning Method on the Visual Reaction Time of Hand and Leg in High School Level Tennis Trainees

Yahya Yıldırım, Ali Kızılet


The aim of this study is; to investigate the effects of differential training method on hand and leg visual reaction time in high school tennis trainees. 24 trainees (12 girls, 12 boys) attending a tennis course in a high school participated in the study voluntarily. It was determined that the mean age of the participants was 15.00±0.00 years, their body weight was 63.46±10.64 kg, their height was 1.65±0.06 m, and their body mass index was 23.26±2.91. According to the results of the pre-tests, 2 homogeneous groups of 12 people were created. One group formed the Differential Group (DG), the other the Traditional Group (TG), and each group included 6 girls and 6 boys. The training sessions were held 3 days a week (90 minutes each) and lasted 10 weeks in total. In the study, the visual reaction time (separately for hand and leg) was performed as a pre-test and a post-test using the Fitlight TrainerTM device. Paired Sample t test was used to examine the difference between pre-test and post-test of the same group. Independent Sample t test was used to measure the intergroup interaction between pre-tests and post-tests. To interpret the statistical significance level, p < 0.05 was accepted. As a conclusion; it was observed that both training methods shorten the visual reaction time, but there was no significant difference between the groups in pre-test and post-tests.
