Vertical jumping, left and right hand grip strengths, resting heart pulse, body fat percentage, body fat mass, body mass index values were measured. For analysing these values, One- Way Anova and t test were used. Consequently, it has been detected that there is significant difference on behalf of the women playing sport in vertical jumping length of football players and sedentery ones, at a level of p<0,01 between right and left hand grip strengths and p<0.05 in resting heart pulse variable and also there is not a significant difference (p<0,05) in other variables. . In addition, it is defined that there is significant (p<0,01) relation between the thickness of waist and breast, hip, thighbone, calf, resting heart pulse, body weight, body fat percentage, body fat mass, body mass index values.
