41 INTERNATIONAL comprises of 28 National Associations throughout the world (Kenya joined in May 2022), (there are individual 41 Clubs in many other countries). It is an organisation which further develops the friendship and comradeship which the members enjoyed when they were members of Round Table. Members of Round Table are obliged to end their membership when they reach the age of 40 or 45, according to the country in which they reside.
Round Table was formed by Louis Marchesi in Great Britain in 1927 and 41 Clubs, which are clubs for former members of Round Table (‘Ex-Tablers’ or ‘Old Tablers’), started to be formed in the early 1940s. The Association of Ex-Round Tablers’ Clubs – 41 Club of Great Britain and Ireland – was formed in 1945. 41 INTERNATIONAL was formed in 1975.
