Members of Rotary Club of Paignton

Overall membership of our Club has been growing in recent years. We have been attracting both Individual and Corporate members. Members come from all walks of life, some are retired whilst others are still in active employment. New Members are welcome!



Regular competitions are held between the Rotary Clubs surrounding Torbay. Members compete for an annual trophy, with each Club organising one of the events, which include skittles, ten pin bowling, target golf, shuffle board, lawn bowls, & darts.


About us

Our membership is made up of a group of local people who meet weekly to enjoy each other’s company whilst discussing and planning projects for charity and the community. Our club is relaxed, informal and hugely supportive of one another. We are all people who are busy in our lives but are also individuals who  want to become involved in shaping and improving our society. We want to give something back to the local and wider communities by using our time, talents, and skills to help those who do not have the same level of opportunity as we have had. We recognise that for some, life can often be a struggle and we want to support and help them in developing their own opportunities in life.


We would welcome new members from every part of the diverse community of men and women that make up Torbay’s population.
