Creator Pinto, Elroy
 
Description The purpose of this study was to compare the Mental Toughness between Individual Game and Team Game players. For the purpose of this study a total of 120 subjects (N=120) were chosen, Individual Game (n=60) and Team Game (n=60). The subjects were chosen using Quota sampling technique. Mental Toughness was measured using Dr. Alan Goldberg Questionnaire (1998) which consisted of thirty questions measuring five attributes namely Reboundability, Pressure Handling Ability, Concentration, Confidence and Motivation. Independent sample „t‟ test was used to compare the Mental Toughness between Individual Game and Team Game players. The results showed that there is a significant difference between Team Game Players and Individual Game players in terms of Reboundability, Pressure Handling and Overall Mental Toughness with Team Game players scoring higher in all three attributes. Whereas there was no significant difference in terms of Concentration, Confidence and Motivation but Team Game players scored higher in motivation and Individual Game players scored higher in concentration, whereas both groups had the same score for confidence. The higher Mental Toughness of Team Game Players compared to Individual Game players can be attributed to the team Game settings associated with team games wherein the players continuously receive support from other members of the team.
