The aim of this study was to compare the coincidence-anticipation timing accuracy of athletes of different racket sports with various stimulus velocity requirements. Ninety players (15 girls, 15 boys for each sport) from tennis (M age = 12.4 yr., SD = 1.4), badminton (M age = 12.5 yr., SD = 1.4), and table tennis (M age = 12.4 yr., SD = 1.2) participated in this study. Three different stimulus velocities, low, moderate, and high, were used to simulate the velocity requirements of these racket sports. Tennis players had higher accuracy when they performed under the low stimulus velocity compared to badminton and table tennis players. Badminton players performed better under the moderate speed comparing to tennis and table tennis players. Table tennis players had better performance than tennis and badminton players under the high stimulus velocity. Therefore, visual and motor systems of players from different racket sports may adapt to a stimulus velocity in coincidence-anticipation timing, which is specific to each type of racket sports.

Coincidence timing accuracy of junior tennis players
Söğüt, Mustafa; Koçak, Mehmet Settar (2009-09-01)
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of age and gender on coincidence timing accuracy (CTA) of junior tennis players (ages of 8-9- 10). The Bassin Anticipation Timer Device was administered to measure CTA of participants (n=228). A 3x2 ANOVA was conducted to analyze age groups and gender differences on CTA. Results revealed that 10 year-old players had significantly lower CTA scores than eight year-old players and male players performed more precisely on CTA than their female counterparts...
Ball speed during the tennis serve in relation to skill level and body height
Söğüt, Mustafa (2016-07-01)
The purpose of this study was to determine the possible relations between serve speed and tennis skill level, and body height. Participants were male (n= 16) and female (n= 17) junior (age= 13.58 ± 1.25) tennis players. Serve speed was evaluated through using a sports radar gun. Tennis skill level was assessed by means of International Tennis Number (ITN) on-court assessment protocol. Pearson’s correlation coefficient indicated significant and positive relationships between serve speed and ITN in both male ...
Coincidence anticipation time of experienced tennis players: effect of stimulus speed and the use of the racket
Kirazcı, Sadettin; Söğüt, Mustafa (2016-11-04)
Main purpose of this study was to examine the effects of various stimulus speeds on Coincidence Anticipation Timing (CAT) performance of experienced tennis players. Secondary purpose was to investigate whether using a button (a classical condition) or a tennis racket (a sport specific condition) for measurement makes a difference in testing performance of the athletes. Participants were 41 tennis players (21 girls & 20 boys) whose age was between 11 to 17 years (M=14.2, SD=3.81). The participants were consi...
COINCIDENCE-ANTICIPATION TIMING AND REACTION TIME IN YOUTH TENNIS AND TABLE TENNIS PLAYERS
Ak, Emre; Koçak, Mehmet Settar (SAGE Publications, 2010-06-01)
The purpose of this study was to compare the coincidence-anticipation timing and reaction times (RT) of 10- to 14-year-old tennis and table tennis players and examine possible sex differences. 107 (51.4%) tennis and 101 (48.6%) table tennis players participated in this study. Players were compared on coincidence-anticipation timing and reaction time. Tennis players performed with less error in the coincidence-anticipation timing task than table tennis players, whereas table tennis players had lower mean rea...
Age-related Differences in Motor Coordination Among Young Soccer Players
Dirik, Hasan Batuhan; Söğüt, Mustafa (2021-03-01)
Objective: The purposes of this study were to determine the motor coordination levels of young soccer players and to examine the age-related differences. Material and Methods: Participants were 93 young (11.9±1.7 years) soccer players. According to their birth years, they were allocated to U10 (n=29), U12 (n=38), and U14 (n=26) categories. Body height and weight were measured and body mass index was calculated as dividing the body weight by the square of the body height. Körperkoordinationstest für Kinder (...
