For the purpose of this study the investigator randomly selected thirty two volleyball players (N=32) from School of Physical Education and Sports Science, Kannur University and B S E Volley ball club Aleppey who were equally divided into experimental group and control group (n=16). Their age ranged from 20 to 25years. The experimental group got sports vision training according to training programme and each training session was for one hour and the total duration of the training programme was for six week. During this period, the control group was let off without any training. The effect of vision training on the serving ability was tested. The pre-test was conducted on the experimental and control group. After six weeks of training post-test was conducted. „T?test was used to analyse the data. From the statistical analysis it is evident that in serving test item significant changes were noticed after training.
