The 62nd Senior National Aquatics Championships will be held from 5th to 10th November, at GMC Balayogi Aquatic Complex in Gachibowli.

Participation of Olympians, including Rehan Poncha, Shika Tandon, Sandeep Sejwal and the latest poster boy of swimming, Virdhawal Khade, is certain to add sheen to the event and pull crowds. India’s top divers, such as Karishma Mohite and Hruthika Shriram will also be in action. State swimmers, Shilpa Naidu, Amreen Malik, Swati Sharma, C M Sai Prasad and S Rama Krishna, will provide the local flavour.
