The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of anthropometry on volleyball serve performance. The researchers recorded serve performances of the volleyball players that participated at the Universities Volleyball League organized by the Turkish University Sports Federation. The Volleyball Serve Scouting Sheet developed by the researchers was used to collect data. The area that the ball was served to, or the type of error (ace, net, out) were recorded on the sheet. Personal information of the athletes who volunteered to participate in the study was collected; height, raised arm height, and body weight were measured. The coefficient of variation and Q-Q plot test were used to test the normal distribution of the data. The significance level was set as p<0.05. Independent samples t-test was used for the statistical analysis. As a result, it was observed that the height and raised arm height of the male volleyball players had an effect on the ability to serve aces (p<0.05).
