Abstract
The purpose of the study was to analyze the differences in certain circumferences and skin fold characteristics between fullback football and hockey players. This study was conducting on 60 football and hockey players with an aim to find out differences in selected anthropometric measurements between the fullbacks football (n=30) and fullbacks hockey (n=30). The data for the present study were collected in the inter college competition organized by Himachal Pradesh University, during the session 2011-2012. Each athlete was tested for various anthropometric characteristics necessary for estimation of chest, hip, thigh and calf circumference and biceps, triceps, sub scapular, supera iliac, thigh and calf skinfold measurements of fullback footballers and hockey players. To analyze the difference in these anthropometric measurements between two groups of football and hockey players were determined through „t‟ test. From the findings, it has been found that the fullbacks of football game have depicted somewhat higher mean value for chest circumference, hip circumference, thigh circumference and calf circumference as compared to fullbacks of hockey game. In skinfold measurements, it has been found that fullbacks of hockey game possessed significantly greater biceps skinfold and suprailiac skinfold than football players. In triceps skinfold, sub scapular skinfold, thigh and calf skinfolld there exist no significant difference between football and hockey players.

Key words: Anthropometry, circumference, skinfolds
