Round Table itself was formed in , exclusively for men aged under 40, with the intention of offering younger men the benefits afforded by similar groups such as Rotary Club , which were dominated by older people. It took off quickly, and within a few years there were more than a hundred Tables in towns and cities across the UK. It became common practice for retiring Tablers to stay on after retiring age as so-called "honorary members", however it soon became clear that Table risked itself becoming over time a group largely of older people. The first Ex-Tablers Club was formed in Liverpool in Former Round Table members from other parts of the UK quickly followed suit, as later did former Tablers overseas Round Table having become an international group in the post war years. Today there over 18, members in clubs across Great Britain and Ireland. Their primary objective remains to support The Round Table in their activities.

Looking to join a 41 Club? It may be that you are just about to leave Round Table or you have left a little while ago and miss the fun and fellowship you had or even just moved location and want to find a new club. So what can we offer? Despite the fact that we might no longer be young in age we continue to be young at heart. Our clubs offer a real variety. Some of our clubs simply retain the fellowship through regular meetings and dinners but the banter remains the same. Some of our newer clubs are just extensions of Round Table with an interesting programme of meetings, events and energetic activities. Whichever it is, they still enjoy the traditions of meeting friends over a beer or two. Some clubs engage in meetings with other clubs which can involve all sorts of challenges from sporting to cerebral. Many clubs are now getting involved in Community activities, supporting local and national charities and fund raising in support of the local Round Table.
