ABSTRACT The importance of the observation in the research on Physical Activity and Sport is manifested in all the lines of research of this knowledge area. Before the imnportance that in this method has the observers, we intend to offer a trainning methodology of the observers that assure the reliability in the data collection and, consistently, it will be a useful instrument for the investigation lines that certify this knowledge area. La Importancia de la Observación en la investigación sobre la Actividad Física y el Deporte es manifiesta, dado que se utiliza prácticamente en todas las líneas de investigación de esta área de conocimiento. Ante la importancia que en este método tiene la utilización de observadores, con este estudio pretendemos ofrecer una Metodología de Entrenamiento de Observadores que asegure la fiabilidad en la recogida de datos y por tanto, sea un instrumento útil para las diferentes líneas de investigación que conforman esta área de conocimiento.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this investigation was to develop a notational system that permits the observation, codification and the analysis of the game actions that are performed in the discipline of individual table tennis. The process that was followed in this study was based on the design of an observational tool in different phases: construction of a taxonomic system of codification; elaboration of an observational protocol; training the observers; codification, registry and storage of the data; analysis of the quality of data; and creation of a computerized database. To develop the observation system, three games that correspond to different rounds of the competition of “España Individual Absoluto” 2008 were randomly selected and analysed. All of the selected games were filmed with digital video cameras for a posterior visualization and analysis by the observers. The data obtained for each of the observed categories were organized, stored and analysed in a database. The correlations intra and interobservers produced a higher level of concordance (Cohen’s Kappa index >0.8). The creation of reliable observation systems which are able to analyse and describe what is happening during the competition permits us to make adequate decisions to optimize training and improve performance. The obtained results indicate that the system of observation used is reliable to evaluate and objectively describe game actions as well as temporal structure of the type of individual table tennis

    ABSTRACT: A computerized system of neuronal networks was used as a performance indicator to go deeply into the spatial strategic use within the racquet and wall sports. The aim of this investigation was: a) to determine the influence of the players’ position in the court when finishing the point and b) to determine if there is any relation between the spaces where the ball is sent to, the game walls and its performance. . We recorded 1226 points in male category and analysed their final action. Specific software was designed for the two-dimensional analysis of the images and the management of the data. We carried out a period of training with four observers for four weeks keeping in mind aspects dealt with by several authors on the necessary and adequate training of the observers adapted to the management of the already described observation tool The final action that hit front wall number 3 always caused displacement, confirming us other data already mentioned. For level 1 we find that the most related spaces to efficacy are front wall 1, side wall 1 and 3, and court 1. We observed the tendency that shows the results where the final action is more efficient than the impact on the two extreme areas of the court and side wall.Key Words: Spatial strategic use, performance indicators, racquet and wall sports. Un sistema computerizado de redes neuronales se utilizó para profundizar en la utilización estratégica del espacio como indicador de rendimiento dentro de los deportes de raqueta y muro. El objetivo de la presente investigación fue: a) determinar la influencia de la posición en la cancha de los jugadores en momento de finalizar el punto y b) determinar si existe relación entre el espacio de envío de la pelota a las paredes de juego y el rendimiento del mismo. Se grabaron 1226 puntos en categoría masculina y se analizó la finalización de cada uno de ellos. Se diseñó un software específico para el análisis bidimensional de las imágenes y la gestión de los datos. Se realizó un periodo de entrenamiento de cuatro semanas a cuatro observadores, consiguiendo una confiabilidad del 85%. Mediante la prueba de Chi-cuadrado de Pearson se analizaron las relaciones entre las variables. Las finalizaciones que impactan en frontis 3, provocaron siempre desplazamiento, aspecto que nos confirma otros datos ya mencionados. Para el nivel 1 encontramos que los espacios más relacionados con la eficacia son frontis 1, pared 1 y 3 y cancha 1. Se observa la tendencia que muestran los resultados a las finalizaciones más eficaces que impactan en las dos zonas extremas de la cancha y pared lateral.Palabras Clave: uso estratégico espacial, indicadores de rendimiento, deportes raqueta y muro.
