The purpose of this study is to examine the burnout levels of basketball players in terms of gender, age and experience. A total of 270 (124 female and 146 male) basketball players (age mean x = 23.07 ± 1.28 years) participated in the study. Maslach's Burnout Inventory was developed by Maslach and Jackson (1981) and adapted to Turkish by Ergin (1992) was used to measure the burnout levels of basketball players for collecting data. The data were analyzed with SPSS program. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient was calculated to test the internal consistency of the scale. The Mann-Whitney U test was used for paired group comparisons. The Kruskal Wallis H test was used for the multiple group comparisons. When Mann Whitney U test results were examined, Emotional Exhaustion (p = 0.063, p > 0.05), Depersonalization (p = 0.498, p > 0.05) and Personal Accomplishment (p = 0.599, p > 0.05), there was no significant difference between male and female basketball players according to gender. According to Kruskall Wallis H test results, the variables of emotional exhaustion (p = 0.162, p > 0.05), Depersonalization (p = 0.319, p > 0.05) and Personal Accomplishment (p = 0.284, p > 0.05) no significant difference was observed. According to Kruskall Wallis H test results, there was no significant difference in Personal Accomplishment (p = 0.674, p > 0.05) sub-dimensions according to experience variable. However, significant differences were found in the subscales of Emotional Exhaustion (p = 0.002, p < 0.05) and Depersonalization (p = 0.033, p < 0.05) compared to the experience variable. As a result, the level of burnout is important for the experience of basketball players.
