The science of anthropometry is all about taking precise measurements of people. Physical anthropologists have used anthropometry, or the measurement of human skeletal features, since the 19th century to learn more about human evolution and diversity. Human anatomy and physiology are taken into account while making anthropomorphic measurements. This research has the potential to improve the selection and screening processes for male volleyball players. Researchers hope these findings will aid PE instructors and coaches in creating more comprehensive and effective training plans for both physical and technical skills. The results of the study on motor fitness might be used by volleyball players as a tool for self-evaluation and inspiration to improve their skills. In this paper the sample includes both public and private institutions that took part in the next 2022–23 season's collegiate volleyball tournament. For this analysis, 104 sportspeople served as the sample. Volleyball in India, especially at the interuniversity level, might benefit from a more scientific approach if this research encourages other volleyball fans to do similar investigations. Scientists will be inspired to do similar research in other sports as a result of this study. The purpose of this research was to look into the connections between certain anthropometric measurements and aspects of physical fitness and the ability to play volleyball.
