Q1. How to join?
Membership of Round Table is open to young men between the ages of 18 and 40 or 45 depending on your country of residence irrespective of their religious beliefs or political opinions.
You would normally join an individual club where you work or where you live so that you can benefit most from your membership as you certainly get out of it what you put in, as with any hobby. Most clubs meet twice a month and are responsible for creating their own programmes. This means that no two clubs are exactly the same. One meeting might be activity based and the next might involve a matter of local concern or provide an insight into a local business and there are always plenty of social events for partners or wives and families to get to know each other.
Although a completely separate organisation, we do exist “Side by Side” with Ladies Circle.
Approximately 2,700 Clubs in more than 65 countries Worldwide
Every club is called a Round Table and depending on the country there may be from one to several hundred clubs making up a National Association.
The National Associations have as one of their aims “to further the peace and goodwill in international relationships” and so become members of Round Table International. Many individual clubs “twin” with other clubs in other countries and arrange exchange visits on a regular basis.
If you should remember one thing when you leave this site, it is the sense of pride and enthusiasm that members of Round Table have that creates lifelong friendships. Could you be missing out?
If you want to know more please contact the Round Table membership officer.
Q2. What do I have to do to join?
It is not difficult or expensive to join, although we expect those who join to actively participate. Most clubs meet twice a month, sometimes over a meal or a drink.
Q3. Why should I consider joining?
Because it is a thoroughly entertaining and personally rewarding hobby that brings you into contact with many like-minded individuals.
Q4. Is it just a club to help charities?
- One of the main reasons to get together is to meet like-minded people, make new friends and have fun
Q5. What do I get out of it?

Q6. What’s it all about?
