Taunton Soroptimists are delighted to welcome both 41 Club and Taunton Round Table to help support the event moving forward and are very much looking forward to restore the Taunton Swimathon to its former glory with over 100 teams taking part over the two days.

Our chosen charity this year is Young Somerset and we hope to raise substantial sponsorship to support this worthy cause.

Taunton 41 Club

41 Club was formed to provide a way for members of Round Table to continue their friendships after retirement from Round Table at the then obligatory age of 40. The full name is “The Association of Ex-Round Tablers’ Clubs” and it forms part of “The Round Table Family”.

Taunton 41 Club thrives on our continued fellowship and are looking forward to supporting the Taunton Swimathon and raising funds for our chosen charity
