The Table Tennis Section of Ikoyi Club 1938 came into existence in February, 1983

Before 1994, The Table Tennis Section was under a shed in the site presently housing the Human Resources building, the Table Tennis Section’s project was conceived between 1994 and 1996 but came into fruition between 1996 and 1997, when it was finally completed by the then Chairman of the Section, late Mr. Tunji Ajani. The first Chairman of the Section was Rev. A.A. Efunkoya between February 1983 – 1985.

The new Table Tennis complex was completed in 1997 by Mr. Tunji Ajani the then Chairman of the Section and the building was commissioned by Mr. Akinbayo Adenubi, the then Chairman of Ikoyi Club 1938.
