“Sports is a universal language you can speak anywhere in the universe” Today sports have become a common activity for the entire society. It may be for pleasure, popularity or performance. Physical education has been defined as a process through which favorable adaptations and learning organic, neuromuscular, intellectual, social, cultural, emotional and aesthetic result from and proceeds through fairly vigorous activities. Sports have a greater role in preparing a powerful human capital. Technology has invaded sports for performance, fitness and for health. There is various means through which science and technology has invaded the sports performance. The use of modern technologies in sports may mean that competition at the upper most level is only affordable to the leading top athletes due to potential high costs. Sports biomechanics is the sport science field that applied of specialized sports equipment. To promote vibrant culture of sports and to have health benefits tremendous amount of research in the areas of sports sciences have been attempted. Current technological revolutions can also be applied to sports. We need to explore largely on the impact of broad based participation and sports as a media for social inclusion. Technological changes frequently results in better building finishes that extend the life of the facility are safer for the participant and are less costly to maintain. It is also necessary to have a good understanding of the application of physics to sport, as physical principles such as motion, resistance, momentum and friction play a part in most sporting events. In relation to sport, biomechanics contributes to the description, explanation and prediction of the mechanical aspects of human exercise, sport and play. The laws of mechanics are applied to human movement in order to gain a greater understanding of sports performance and to reduce sport injuries. Proper understanding of biomechanics relating to sports skill has the greatest implications on sport's performance, rehabilitation and injury prevention, along with sport mastery. The knowledge of sports biomechanics is very essential to raise the level of performance of the players. Technology in sports is a technical means by players attempt to improve their training and competitive surroundings. The sports industry is growing opportunities for innovation, new ideas and investment and disruptive innovation is changing the competition.
