Do people look up to you, in more ways that one? Do you stand a head and shoulders above the rest? Does the thought of clothes shopping make you cringe? Then Vancouver Tall Club is the place for you!
What is the Vancouver Tall Club?
VTC was started back in 2007 by Danielle Anderson, who had enough of people asking if she played basketball. It's a social club for people who are taller than your average Vancouverite, and is intended to provide a range of social activities where members can finally get away from the "you're so tall" comments and hang out with people closer to their own size.
What are the height requirements?
Men must be at least 6'2"/188 cm and women must be at least 5'10"/178 cm to join.
What kind of events do you have?
We often hold one or two pub nights a month, and we run many different kinds of activites, from snowshoeing, to karaoke, to games nights, to museum visits and everything in between. Have an idea of your own or not seeing an event you'd like? Members are highly encouraged to run their own events! Just post a suggestion and/or contact one of the organizers and we'll help you set it up.
What do I have to do to join?
Simply create a free meetup account and send a request to join. Please make sure to include your height and post a clear profile photo of yourself (for security reasons) as we will not approve you otherwise.
There are two criteria for membership: you must be 19 years of age or older, and meet or exceed the above height requirements.
How much does it cost?
There are no monthly or yearly fees for meetup, but all events are pay-your-own-way (though not all events cost money to attend). There are costs associated with running the group such as maintaining the meetup website. To off-set these costs, we ask members to pay a $10 per year fee.
