About The Paramount Tall Club

The Paramount Tall Club was established in 1946 to unite and organize tall men and women for the cultivation of friends and common interests,and to sponsor activities for promotion of cultural and social improvements for tall people (in other words, having fun!!!). Paramount was a founding member of American Affiliation of Tall Clubs, which has become Tall Clubs International. Paramount merged with the Tall Girls' Club of Chicago in 1963 (the Tall Girls' Club of Chicago was founded in 1940 and was also a founding member of the AATC).

Activities are the lifeblood of Paramount. In addition to special events such as the world-famous Paramount Weekend in late January and annual Picnic in June, club activities have included restaurant dining, happy hour get-togethers, bowling, golf, mini golf, canoeing, sailing, theatre, bike rides, flea markets, concerts and much more. We also encourage our members to travel to visit other tall clubs to enjoy their activities and Weekends.

We also work with our local NMF chapter by raising funds, volunteering during their annual Marfan Walk-a-thon and participating in other community service activities.
