Draught playing started at the frontage of the main hall of Abeokuta Sport Club. The game is played after some members would have exhausted their energy in energy sapping games like the Tennis, Table tennis and the Billiards.

Those member that started the game were: Mr. Majemite (Late), Chief Olafimihan, Mr. Ogunsole (Father in Law) and some other players.

The new crop of players just to mention a few, are: Dr. Adisa Salami, the Oretade (Ademole & Babatunde), Mr Eniola Opere, Engr.Ade Bakare egnr.Dure Osiyem, Mr. Kola Ogunyinka, Chief A.C.O.Sodeinde, Engr.Wole Adekoya, Engr.Taiwo Fatoki, Engr Seye Osho, Mr. J.O.Oyedele, Engr.Tunde Senkale, Alhaji Wale Bekenne, Wale Abiodun, Tunde Oduwole, and Bashoru Tunde Elegbede.

Yearly tournaments among the interested member started from the year 1974, with Majemite emerging as the first champion. Other champions of the section are: Dr. Adisa Salami (Disco), Ademole Oretola, Mr. Babatunde Oretade, Engr. Babatunde Senkale and Engr. Oluseye Osho.

Draught today is no more played as a relaxing game after other games, as the membership of the section rose and it is more or less the game that other members of the Club who do not know how to play often like to watch. The sections now, play under a big tree with a big adjourning edifice that is under construction for the section. It is envisaged that the big building would gulp about ten million naira.
