Abstract


The aim of the current study was to investigate the effects of Whole Body Vibration (WBV) training on some tennis performance parameters like International Tennis Numbr (ITN) scores, serve speed, reactive agility (with and without racket), 5171, 10m, 20m sprint and isokinetic strength values. 19 tennis players (training group: 9, control group: 10) participated in the research as volunteers. All the selectd parameters were measured before and after the training protocol. While control group was following regular tennis training, intervention group practiced WBV training for eight weeks (3 times a week, 1 level up for every fortnight, 15-20 mins per section). Consequently, it has been revealed that WBV training made an increase in selected performance parameters of athletes.
