No, but a place that is only used by a club would be a community_centre
-> club_home
I can also meet regularly with a club in a restaurant, which doesn't
mean that it becomes a "community_centre".

In this description after the Wikipedia article, my execution is
included. Because

 1. "in their communities" -> community = club
 2. "function"
      * -> "As the place for all-community celebrations at various
        occasions and traditions."
      * -> "As a place where community members meet each other socially."
      * -> "As a place housing local clubs and volunteer activities."
      * -> "As a place for community resources."

Attention my opinion: I have to honestly say that I don't understand why
you can't just continue using a more established tag that is also
grammatically correct ...? "Community_centre" shouldn't just be
interpreted too narrowly, because community is more than just a
neighborhood or something similar.
