About Us

Bahrain Round Table No. 1 was chartered in 1977 and currently holds its business meetings at the British Club. The focal point of any Round Table is its regular meetings. Bahrain Round Table holds one business and one social meeting each month. The regular business meeting is the forum for the Round Table’s more serious activities and includes discussions on social and service projects, but usually concludes with some form of entertainment. Social meetings are more relaxed and can vary enormously in format; they may include sport, visits and games. In addition we hold frequent and always popular social events which involve wives and families such as Ladies Nights, Desert Barbecues, Quiz Nights, Sailing, Treasure Hunts, Theatre Nights ... the list is endless.

As well as organising the Bahrain Marathon Relay and other charitable fund raising events, Bahrain Round Table has itself entered teams in events such as “Against the Clock” and the “Bahrain SuperKart Championship”.

The sky is literally the limit when it comes to the numerous activities that Tablers find to take part in. In fact, the only limit is your enthusiasm, so if there’s something that you’ve always wanted to do then Bahrain Round Table is the ideal chance for you to have a go. That’s why our unofficial motto is: “We don’t just sit there”.

Round Table exists in more than 65 countries and has as one of its aims “to further the establishment of peace and goodwill in international relationships”. As a result many Round Tables have links or are “twinned” with Tables in other countries with which exchange visits are arranged on a regular basis. In addition Round Table International supports a number of Service Projects, particularly those in Africa and Asia. Round Table has been instrumental in establishing clinics in Africa, refugee villages in Hong Kong and in the re-building of schools in India and Sri Lanka following the Tsunami. The power of Round Table comes from the ability to direct relief effort and funds direct to the point of requirement without the overhead of traditional agencies. Often the relief is given to local Round Tables in the affected areas to distribute locally.

The main aim of Round Table is to have fun and meet people from all walks of life, whilst also organising fund raising events and community activities. These principles are set out in the six ‘Aims and Objectives’ below. Five of them were established at Norwich in 1927 and the sixth (about international relationships) was added in the 1930’s as Round Table spread abroad. Apart from minor wording amendments they have remained the same since.

They are:

1. To develop the acquaintance of young men through the medium of their various occupations.

2. To emphasise the fact that one’s calling offers an excellent medium of service to the community.

3. To cultivate the highest ideals in business, professional and civic traditions.

4. To recognise the worthiness of all legitimate occupations and to dignify each his own by precept and example.

5. To further the establishment of peace and goodwill in international relationships.

6. To further these objects by meetings, lectures, discussions and other activities.
