In order to measure the pre competitive anxiety level, questionnaires as the tool such as Illiniois self-evaluation Inventory and Sports competition anxiety test (SCAT) were implemented on racket players for data collection. In order to analyze the data collected descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation and comparative statistics of multivariate analysis of variance was employed and was tested at 0.05 level of significance. The multivariate analysis was found to be insignificant in the sub factors of pre-competitive anxiety between tennis and table tennis players as the value of Wilks’ lambda (0.673) was found to be insignificant at 0.05 level of significance (p= 0.297).
