Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare the comparison of the Body Image and Self Esteem among the FIDE rated female chess players in Kerala. 180 FIDE rated female chess players were selected as the subjects for the study. FIDE International Rating is used in Chess to calculate an estimate of the Chess playing strength of a player. The subjects under the study were equally assigned to six Groups based on their FIDE International Ratings. The six Groups are given below: Group A- Players with the Rating of 2100 and above; Group B- Players with the Rating between 1900 and 2099; Group C- Players with the Rating between 1700 and 1899; Group D- Players with the Rating between 1500 and 1699; Group E- Players with the Rating between 1200 and 1499; Group F- Players with the Rating between 1000 and 1199. This study examines the differences between the selected groups of FIDE rated female chess players on Body Image & Self-Esteem. Body Image was assessed by the 23-item Body Cathexis Scale; Self-Esteem was measured using the 10-item Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSE). ANCOVA & Scheffe’s Post Hoc test were used to determine the difference between the different groups under the study. The findings of the study indicated that the Players of higher FIDE rating showed better Body Image and Self Esteem than the Players of lower FIDE rating.
