The goal of the study was to determine how Panjab athletes' sporting performance was impacted by anxiety. The major goal of this particular study was to understand how players' physiological, psychological, and behavioural responses to worry. All of the athletes engaging in the various sports in Panjab made up the population of this study. A comprehensive list of all players who had registered was obtained from the Punjab Sports Directorate. For the purpose of gathering data, the researcher created a closed-ended questionnaire and individually collected the replies from the 120 gamers that made up the target group. Following data collection, the researcher tabulated and evaluated the data using percentage and mean average as statistical tools. Following data analysis, the researcher came to the conclusion that a player's total sporting performance is adversely impacted by worry. The data also showed that the most effective ways to deal with and overcome anxiety when participating in sports are education on anxiety and its harmful effects, as well as anxiety-reduction techniques and methods like medication, meditation, and psychotherapy.
