Background: Balance is a necessary component in sport activities to reduce noncontact injuries specifically in basketball players. Balance training during competitive season reduces the occurrence of injury by 38%. Hence, in this study, we evaluated the effect of standing Pilates on balance in basketball players. Aim: This study aims to study the effect of standing Pilates on balance in basketball players. Objectives: To find out balance using star excursion test and activity specific balance confidence (SEBT and ASBC) scale in basketball players. Materials and Methods: In pre-post experimental study design, 30 basketball players between the age group 18 and 35 years were included in the study. By taking prior consent individuals balance and confidence were assessed using SEBT and ASBC, data were collected and analyzed. Beginners Pilate's exercises were taught in the 1st week, and intermittent and advanced were introduced in the 3rd and 4th week. Postintervention assessment was performed and data were analyzed. Results: Mean age was 22 ± 0.7 in which 13 males and 13 females were included in the study. 4 subjects dropped out from the study. Data were analyzed and students paired t-test was used. Mean of pre SEBT(R) and mean of post SEBT(R) 2.51 ± 0.58 was compared with paired t-test with P value (0.000) was statistically significant. Mean of pre-SEBT(L) and mean of post SEBT(L) 2.25 ± 0.86 was compared with paired t-test with P value (0.000) was statistically significant. Mean of pre-ASBC and mean of post-ASBC 13.7 ± 3.52 was compared with paired t-test with P value (0.000) was statistically significant.
