ABSTRACT
Stroke skill in badminton contains strength and speed elements that become one of many important factors for winning the game. Whereas anthropometric measurements can be used to predict any functional abilities. The aim of this study is to find out the correlation among some anthropometric measurements in upper extremity (i.e. arm length, forearm length, arm circumference, forearm circumference) and stroke skill evaluated by used Poole Forehand Clear Test. The subjects of this cross sectional study consist of 27 badminton athletes from PB Djarum Kudus (16 males and 11 females) aged 14-20 years old. As the result, there is a significant correlation between the score of Poole Forehand Clear Test for stroke skill and arm circumference (p=0.036) and forearm length (p=0.003). Both of these anthropometric measurements are strong predictors for stroke skill in male athletes. However, all the evaluated anthropometric measurements of female athletes are not significant correlation (p>0.05) with Poole Forehand Clear Test.
