Around 200 players from across J&K turned up at Water Sports Centre Nigeen here on Monday to participate in selection trials for 9th National Dragon Boat Championship-2020 for men and women to be held at Bilawal Lake Indore from April 28 to May 1.

The trials were conducted by J&K State Sports Council. “It is a new beginning in the water sports arena of J&K as we are now seeing players coming from all over J&K.
