Background: Eye hand coordination is a complex skill which is essential for sensory functions and motor functions. It can be an important indicator for the evaluation of goal directed movements (movements associated with activity of daily living, gross motor function and fine motor function). The difficulty in the eye hand coordination may adversely affect the performance of any sports person. Purpose: The study was conducted to, compare eye-hand coordination among the volleyball playing and non-volleyball playing university students. Study design: Study was a cross section survey Method: Volleyball playing and non-volleyball playing 40 university students, aged 18 to 25 years were taken from a University in New Delhi, India. Eye-hand coordination performance was measured by using Buzz Wire Task and Alternate Hand Wall Test. Mean values of both the tests were compared between volleyball playing group and non-volleyball playing group using Mann-Whitney U test. Result: Statistical significance was tested at 0.05 levels. The test results of this study showed statistically significant difference in the mean rank of eye-hand coordination between both groups (Buzz wire equipment U = 31.50, p = 0.00 and Alternate Hand Wall Test U = 104.50, p = 0.00). Conclusion: Volleyball playing university students showed better eye hand coordination and performed better in comparison to non-volleyball playing university students in this chosen setting.
