Absolutely not. Most single-use clubhouses would fail the "duck test"
as a community centre.
Conversely, many community centres may have sports clubs (or other
clubs) associated with them, but that's not the point.
I wholehearted agree with what Nathan wrote earlier:

That's why I added the "invalid use of tag" section at
back in 2015, the discussion of which has carried on - see
Back in 2015, I would certainly have supported reinstating the content
of that page as it existed at
. Unfortunately, tag changes to e.g. youth clubs such as
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5124119917/history have corrupted the
original use of the tag, so that we don't have a tag for actual
community centres any more. The wiki should reflect actual usage, and
right now that runs the whole gamut of non-community-centre clubs and
organisations (religious and secular, sport- and hobby-based and other,
community-based and other).
One question still remains though - how do I tag an actual community
centre? "amenity=village_hall" works for a subset of these, but there
are many for which it doesn't.
