HUBUNGAN KOORDINASI MATA-TANGAN DENGAN KETEPATAN PUKULAN FOURHAND TENIS MEJA MAHASISWA PKO FIK UNIMED
This study aims to determine whether eye-hand coordination is related to the accuracy of fourhand table tennis in PKO students of the UNIMED sports science faculty. The accuracy of the strokes is influenced by several factors such as hand eye coordination, wrist flexibility, training motivation and so on. Based on the author's observations, not all students who take table tennis elective courses master the basic techniques of table tennis games such as forehand. When the ball is hit with a forehand stroke, it does not aim at the target and appears to be out of control. A player who can maximize eye-hand coordination, will be able to control the ball well and can return the ball in difficult positions. The ability of the forehand is affected by eye-hand coordination. Players who have good eye-hand coordination will produce a forehand that is right on target. In the hypothesis it is said that there is a significant relationship between eye-hand coordination (X) and the accuracy of table tennis forehand (Y) in PKO Unimed students. Based on the results of hypothesis testing regarding the relationship between the two variables, it is proven that there is a significant relationship, the result of the correlation coefficient (ry.x) is 0.4081 with a determination coefficient of 16.66%. This means that eye-hand coordination has a strong enough relationship. Eye-hand coordination can also affect the accuracy of table tennis forehand strokes by 16.66%, while 83.34% is determined by other variables. By having good eye-hand coordination skills, the accuracy of table tennis forehand strokes will be good too.
