The Round Table family
Round Table is not just for men - we have a family of organisations for everyone to get involved with.
Ladies Circle - Ladies Circle is open to women aged 18-45 and is Round Table's sister organisation, sharing the same core values of friends, having fun and supporting local causes
41 Club and Tangent- Once Round Table or Ladies Circle members have left their respective clubs at 45, they can move onto 41 club (association of ex-Tablers) or Tangent. These two clubs came into being to allow the original clubs to remain true to their vision of catering for the younger generations, while allowing Table and Circle members to continue their involvement in the Round Table family.

Hucknall Round Table 41 Club
41 Club was formed in 1945 to provide a way for members of Round Table to continue their friendships after retirement from Round Table at the then obligatory age of 40.
The full name name is "The Association of Ex-Round Tablers’ Clubs" and it forms part of "The Round Table Family".
Round Table was founded in March 1927 by Louis Marchesi. Marchesi was a young Rotarian in Norwich who became aware of the lack of opportunities for the young businessmen of the day to meet and prepare themselves for their responsibilities as senior businessmen in later years. He found himself surrounded by older men, so he started a club for younger men with a maximum age of 40 to give them the right environment to develop their professional and civic skills while assisting the local community, the nation and later the world as a whole.
Round Table was formed after being inspired by a speech by the then Prince of Wales who said “The young business and professional men of this country must get together round the table, adopt methods that have proved so sound in the past, adapt them to the changing needs of the times and, wherever possible, improve them." Since that time Round Table has used the motto "Adopt - Adapt - Improve".
Originally once a Round Tabler reached 40 years of age, he would retire from Round Table and would then become eligible to join 41 Club. In 1998 Round Table changed their retirement age to 45.
41 Club specialises in continuing the friendships made in Round Table. The philosophy of the club is very similar to that of Round Table, but it is often less ‘active’ and in many cases clubs meet less often. The Club's main purpose is to support Round Table and, if possible, participate in local community service initiatives or charity work. However the ‘continued friendship’ and ‘fellowship’ aspect is of great importance. Most clubs meet monthly, often in a public house, golf club or restaurant. Meetings are usually semi-formal with either an activity or a speaker to entertain. Lifelong friendships are often made in 41 Club.
