On the weekend on March 4-5, collegiate athletes from five northeastern states gathered at the Westchester Table Tennis Center in Pleasantville, New York, for the 2023 NCTTA Northeast Regional Championships and MetroSports was there. Over the course of two days of highly competitive play the Northeast Regional's teams earned their trip to Texas.

The competition featured both individual and team competitions among athletes from Boston University, Brown University, Columbia University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), New York University (N.Y.U), Princeton University, Rutgers University, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Yale University.

The National Collegiate Table Tennis Association, the governing body in charge of this fast-paced Olympic sport, oversees programs at more than 150 colleges across the USA and Canada. NCTTA roots extend back to 1992 as the League of Northeast Intercollegiate Table Tennis. Over the past decade, national tournaments have taken hundreds of NCTTA players to Eau Claire, Wisconsin (in 2015), Monroeville, Pennsylvania (in 2014) and Rockford, Illinois in 2013.
