WELCOME

Welcome to Scrabble Section of the Lagos Country Club Ikeja.

After the Hullabaloo in the Club occasioned by the proposed merger of the section with the Other Games sections, the Scrabble section has since settled down to work with the new Excos headed by Mr. Giwa Hakeem. As part of the promises made by this chairman to re enliven the Scrabble section, a tournament was sponsored by Mr. Emmanuel Mogbolu to commemorate the 14th day in office of the new Excos. This is unprecedented in the history of Lagos Country Club.
The Scrabble section is strategically located at the upper building in the Club, sharing floor with the library for members who want to busy themselves with some academic work. It is a Section most members dread to frequent, simply because it is believed the game is too brain-tasking.
To some members, it is the Section for the book-worms while some prefer to call it OLD PEOPLES HOME because of the preponderant number of life members of the Club that always come around to play the game. Yet, these are men you would not regret sharing your time with.
To us at the Scrabble Section, we see this as one of the liveliest Sections you can have around. It is a serene but intellectually vibrating environment where you get to learn and appreciate the etymologies (origins) of so many different languages and, by so doing, improve your level of vocabulary while it keeps you mentally alert at all times.

To make the Section more attractive to members, we have introduced an equally brain-tasking but grammar-free fun-game of Chess. This we hope will make the Section livelier and increase the number of participating members. Smile
Part of the efforts to popularise the game, and hence the Section, is the introduction of Coaching Clinics/Competition particularly targeted at the younger members of the Club. We hope that these young players will be the future pillars of the Section.
Finally, we wish to pay tribute to those founding fathers, like Chief Femi Gbadebo, Chief Femi Oluwole, Otunba Dele Opanuga,Mr Wale Dada-Bello, Air Cdre Bolaji David (rtd) and a host of others who saw to the emergence of Scrabble Section and who have seen to its continued existence among the committee of Sections in the Club.
