Aim of the present study was to find if diet had any substantial role in influencing the muscle strength and force in table tennis players. 183 table tennis players (right handed) were included (70 vegetarian, 113 non vegetarian) in whom hand grip strength was determined by spring type isometric hand grip dynamometer. When compared dominant hand had a significantly better grip strength when compared to non dominant hand. Although a positive co-relation was obtained when grip strength was compared in dominant hand among vegetarians and non- vegetarians it was not statistically significant. In conclusion a well planned vegetarian diet is recommended for an athlete because of its antioxidant properties.
