Pearson’s product movement correlation was appliedto find out the relationship between selected coordinative abilities andperformance of basketball players. For testing the hypothesis the level ofsignificance was set at 0.05. Results: In this study there was significantrelationship between the differentiation ability, reaction ability and rhythmability with the performance of playing ability of basketball players.
