About Camberley 41 Club

Camberley 41 Club is the local group affiliated to the International 41 Club organisation of ex Round Tablers’ and invited members. Membership of Round Table originally ceased at age 40 (now 45) and hence the formation of the 41 Club as a National Organisation in 1945. Most towns throughout the UK have a Round Table Club and a 41 Club. Nationally we have 725 41 Clubs with more than 14,500 members, who all adhere to our mission to promote Fellowship through a variety of means including meetings, social and sporting events, outings and joint activities with our wives or partners. We also promote community responsibility and pursue fundraising as a means of supporting local charities and good causes. We meet at least monthly at various venues around the borough.

Round Table was founded in March 1927 by Louis Marchesi. He was 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".

There are four members of the Round Table Family of Clubs:

  • Round Table for men between 18 and 45
  • 41 Club for past Round Tablers over 45
  • Ladies Circle for women up to 45
  • Tangent for women

41 Club is managed by an elected National Board - consisting of a National President and nine officers with specific responsibilities. In addition, there is a National Councillor elected by each of the 25 geographical regions in the country who represent the clubs. The National Councillors and the National Board form the ‘National Council’ of 41 Club.

41 Club is also an international organisation with 28 countries affiliated to ’41 International’.
