Area 45 & Round Table
What is Area 45 ?
Also known as "Midland Shires", Area 45 is one of 53 regions within Round Table in Britain and Ireland (RTBI). In turn, RTBI is part of a world-wide movement of Round Tables.
What is Round Table ?
Tabling has it's roots in Norwich in 1927. From one man's idea it has grown to become an international organisation spanning around 62 countries and involving over 36,000 members.
Most Tables meet on a regular evening every fortnight, primarily on a social basis. Members take it in turns to organise events for these evenings which can include just about anything - and usually do ! White water rafting, karting, climbing and so on perhaps when people feel energetic; or a snooker evening, pub visit, BBQ or quiz night when a more leisurely evening is called for.
Organising Tables in to areas allows Tablers to take part in a wider local network - which basically means more chance for fun and fellowship !
Joining Round Table
Round Table is open to men aged 18-45. After that you get thrown out - it helps keep Table fresh and dynamic. Ex Tablers often go on to join the 41 Club (yes, we know - but the age limit used to be 41 so...),where they can keep in touch and continue to enjoy the friendships that were made as members of the Round Table. There is always a strong link between 41 clubs and the local Table, especially when it comes to assisting with fundraising acitvities where 41 Club members provide invaluable support.
Any of the Tables in Area 45 would be very happy to receive enquiries. You can use the Contact Us facility to get in touch with your local Table.
