The study was conducted on ninety players belonging to three groups (Individual, Combative and Team Games) with a purpose to characterize and to compare Incentive Motivation (consisting of seven systems i.e. Excellence, Power, Sensation, Independence, Success, Aggression and Affiliation) in Individual, Combative and Team Game Players.
