 Founding Fathers 
Like all great human achievements, the Yoruba Tennis Club, the oldest indigenous Club in Nigeria, had a humble, informal but sincere beginning. The first meeting was held probably in the early part of 1926, and the second meeting (minutes of which are available) was held at 75, Tokunboh Street, Lagos on Thursday, 15th July 1926. At that time the Club was known as Orelodun Tennis Club.

The first Chairman, Mr. V. Ade Allen, a notable social figure of his days led the Club admirably through the early period and left an indelible and enviable record in the services of the Club, having been the Chairman for eleven years; 1926 - 1930, 1933 - 1938 and from 1939 until his death on Thursday, 11th December 1941
