For this purpose, 63 women included 34 not doing sports and 29 playing football for different clubs in Van are incorporated into the study. The control group is choosen among the students of Yuzuncu Yil University. Human subjects' average height is 160,62 +/- 5,52 cm, average age is 19,87 +/- 2,50 year and average weight is 54,78 +/- 9,26 kg. Average sport history of the persons playing sport has been identified to be 4,31 +/- 2,22 year. Besides, the girt of breast, waist, hip, thighbone, calf has been measured. 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.
