Abstract Understanding the interplay of aggression and anxiety in individuals who compete in physical sport against those who compete in non-physical sport is crucial to provide individuals with customized training programs, interventions, and coping strategies. Incorporating a comparative framework this study aims to investigate the correlation of aggression and performance anxiety in physical and non-physical sports. The study included a total 100 participants of which 51 were individuals competing in physical sports and 49 competing in non-physical sports, the distribution also included 64 males and 36 females. Both performance anxiety and aggression were measured through standardized assessment tools, Sports Anxiety Scale-2 (SAS-2) by Smith, Ronald E. et, al. (2006) and the Buss Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ) by Buss and Perry (1992). The scores of physical sport participants indicated a mean score of 78.3 (SD=16.5) in Aggressive behaviours and 29.7 (SD=9.9) in Anxious behaviours, mean scores for non-physical sport participants were 67.9 (SD=16.4) for aggression and 27.8 (SD=7.4) for sport anxiety. The findings of this study highlight that both groups physical sport and non-physical) sport had a moderate to good positive correlation of aggression and performance anxiety, and the need for further research dedicated to professional athletes in both domain.
