Abstract: This study aimed to determine the anthropometrics of athletes representing Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) during the Malaysian Inter-varsity Sports (MASUM) tournament, 2018. In this study, 50 athletes consisted of 15 hockey players, 12 netball players, 13 volleyball players and 10 volleyball players were recruited as participants. Percentage of body fat was measured using formula by Jackson, Pollock and Ward (1980) while somatotype were determine using the scale by Heath and Carter. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Pearson correlation. The results of the anthropometric profile indicate that almost all teams have an endo-meso (more muscular) body, but the results of the relationship showed that significant relationship between the anthropometric profile and the performance were only found in the bowling team, r = 0.13, p = 0.14, p < 0.05. For hockey, netball, and volleyball teams did not show significant relationship (r = 0.15, p = 0.74, p> 0.05), (r = 0.12, r = 0.64, p> 0.05), (r = 10, p = 0.71, p> 0.05) respectively. In conclusion, the overall anthropometric profile cannot be indicated as determinant of a team’s performance at the MASUM 2018 tournament.
