Why Texas Wesleyan as hosts?

Texas Wesleyan has a strong connection and history with sport of table tennis. The table tennis team is the leading collegiate program and has been the national collegiate champions for over a decade.  Last weekend, Texas Wesleyan won collegiate regional competitions in Atlanta and will go on to the national collegiate championships in Pennsylvania next month. Go Rams!
