Thanks for the countering view – it’s good to hear from both sides!
> I my opinion a club is also a community.
Personally, I think that is a bit of a stretch of the definition. A “common interest” community would, in my understanding, normally be much larger than a club.
> And a community centre is a centre where a community come together.
Even if we hold the assertation that a club is a type of community, you seem to be saying that any place where any community meets is therefore a community centre.
That is what I disagree with.
A community centre is a very specific term. It has far more requirements to it than simply being the meeting place of a club (or in your definition a very specific community). Wikipedia gives a list of example activities which one normally expects a community centre to hold: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community_centre#Uses_and_activities

A question has arisen out of Fizzie41’s proposed military cadet work  about how to tag the building in which the cadets would meet as. But it holds more widely than that.
Currently, the recommended tagging scheme  for buildings in which a club meets is using the amenity=community_centre  tag, specifically:
This scheme is currently used in 1,421 cases (having started being in use from January 2016) . However, this recommendation appears to have been via a Wiki edit, rather than an accepted proposal and is not without its controversy .
My concern with this approach is that a private building, which is used exclusively by one club only, and holds no other “community” events cannot possibly be called a community centre. It is, and should be stored as, a clubhouse.
Than this group at itself is also a community....
The cambride dictionary have two definitions of community<https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/community>:
* the people living in one particular area OR
* people who are considered as a unit because of their common interests, social group, or nationality
I my opinion a club is also a community.
And a community centre is a centre where a community come together.
