Wood Stud game is an ancient game, which originated from the Western part of Nigeria. We grew up to play it in the early 90s. We usually play it as competition between 2 or more people or 2 more towns as a competition.
Mr Oladimeji kayode Henry is the project coordinator of Wood Stud Game. He is a native of ilupeju Ekiti,Oye local Government Ekiti State Nigeria. He is very passionate about reviving an ancient Western Nigerian sports game, Wood Stud Game. His goal is to make Wood Stud Game, a popular Game in modern time and use it to impact lives meaningfully.
In recent years, there has been a drift from that culture of adopting Wood Stud Game as a tool for youth solidarity and peaceful coexistence as the Nigerian Sports system suffers from neglect and chronic under-funding.
Our mission is to empower the Youths via the Wood Stud Game Project, bring back the extinct ancient sport game to live and make the game popular in Nigeria and abroad.
