This experimental research mainly emphasised on the study of explosive strength between inter collegiate volleyball and basketball players. Participants of the study were collectively 50 male volleyball and basketball players who have keenly participated in Panjab University inter collegiate tournament. The data were furnished through standing broad jump and vertical jump test. The data was statistically analyzed by using ‘t’ test. For testing the significance in explosive strength, the level of significance chosen was 0.05. The comparisons of mean scores on explosive strength by standing broad jump were not significant. But in case of explosive strength while quantified by vertical jump test, it was found to be significant as evidenced by ‘t’ with degrees of freedom at 0.05 probability level of significance. The result of the present study shows that explosive strength through vertical jump of the volleyball players was superior to those of the basketball players.
