Rotary International is a global network of service volunteers. It is the world's largest service organisation for business and professional people, with over 1,200,000 members operating in 200 countries world-wide. Please click here for more general information about Rotary.

The Rotary Club of Bournemouth was the first Rotary Club to be formed in the Bournemouth & Poole area and is now a thriving dual-gender club with around 50 members. For more information about what we do and how to join us, please click here.

We meet weekly on Mondays, usually at 1.00pm in the Suncliff Hotel, East Overcliff Drive, Bournemouth (click here for a map). We also have a Satellite Group for younger (aged 30+) business people which meets on alternate Tuesdays at 6.00pm. For more information, click here

We welcome visitors and Rotarians from other Clubs, but please let our Secretary know a few days in advance that you are coming.
