Abstract

The present study was aimed to indentify the Social Intelligence and Social Support in Basketball Players. For this purpose, sixty female basketball players of 20 to 25 years of age were selected. They were further divided into three groups; (i.e., N1=20; District, N2=20; State and N3=20 National). To measure the level of Social Intelligence among subjects, Social Intelligence Questionnaire, constructed by Chadha and Ganesan (1986) was administered. To measure the level of Social Support among subjects, Social Support Scale constructed by Zimet et al. (1988) was administered. One way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was employed to find out the intra-group differences. The findings show that no significant differences were found among female basketball players on the sub-variables of Social Intelligence. The findings also show that insignificant differences were present among female basketball players on the sub-variables of Social Support.
