Imagery interventions significantly enhanced motor performance, motivational outcomes, and affective outcomes. Top athletes use imagery extensively to build on their strengths and help eliminate their weaknesses. To compete more effectively. Imagery not only helps athletes to regulate the anxiety they experience during competitions but also helps athletes to stay confident, focused and mentally tough. The purpose of this study was to measure the effect of imagery on an Archer’s performance. The sample size of this current study was comprised of male (n=30) of archery players from the University of the Punjab, Pakistan, Punjab Sports Board. Researchers worked on the imagery and imagery session design by PETTLEP Model. A paired-sample t-test showed that the imagery training (Treatment Group) improved significantly (p<0.001) from the pre-test to the post-test. The results strongly support the use of imagery in enhancing the performance of male Archers at the university level.
