Abstract:

The study sought to assess and discriminate general anxiety levels among male and female wrestlers in Chandigarh. A total of 50 (N=50) men and female wrestlers from Chandigarh were chosen using random selection procedures. These participants were then classified based on their age range between 18 to 25 years and their participation, which was male (25) and female (25) at the national level. Data were collected using the General Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7) Questionnaire, which Spitzer and colleagues developed in 2006. The mean, SD, and 't'-value were used to evaluate the significance of differences between the two groups, with a significance level of 0.05. Data study revealed that female wrestlers had greater anxiety levels than male wrestlers. A considerable difference was found between male and female wrestlers.
