Aim of the study was to assess the Lumbo-Pelvic Stability in Tennis players. Method: An assessment based cross sectional study was done with Purposive sampling technique. A total of 26 subjects were divided according to the years of experience in the game of Tennis. Group A consisting of 12 subjects with (= 5) years of experience (Professional tennis players). Subjects were assessed using self made questionnaire and Pressure Biofeedback Unit (testing of lumbo-pelvic stability (Richardson and Jull?s grading). Subjects with previous/ existing history of severe musculoskeletal pathologies (spinal fracture, structural scoliosis, abdominal surgery) were excluded from the study. Results: On comparison of Lumbo-Pelvic Stability scores between Recreational and Professional Tennis players, the results exhibited a significant correlation using non-parametric Chi square test, with p value (p<0.05). On comparison between Group A& Group B, the latter attained higher Lumbo-Pelvic stability scores of 2a and 2b (Richardson & Jull?s grading) corresponding to the relative differences of 8% and 43% respectively. The result also showed significant correlation (p<0.05) between Core Strengthening exercises and higher Lumbo-Pelvic Stability scores in Professional Tennis players. Conclusion: Professional Tennis players attained higher Lumbo-Pelvic Stability (LPS) scores as compared to Recreational Tennis players.
