Clubs are a new feature introduced in The Sims 4: Get Together, which work similarly to outings in The Sims 2: Nightlife and The Sims 3: Late Night, and social groups in The Sims 3: University Life. Sims can create a Club in which up to 8 Sims can join. Leaders of the Club can change the color of its members' Plumbobs (Leaders also get a crown over their Plumbob) as well as customize their members' interests, personalities, behavior and style.
This feature allows players to create and play with groups of different Sims and do various activities depending on the Group Leader's wishes. Sims can join up to three different social clubs at a time, but can only play one at a time.
Creating a ClubEdit
Players can create a Club in which the selected Sim will become the leader. The player can choose the Club's name, Club symbol, description and requirements for Sims who join the Club. After this, the player can select what activities Club members can do, a Preferred Club activity and an activity which Club members are not supposed to do. This can all be customized from a Menu that pops up when creating a Club.
Players can set requirements for the Club such as Age, Career, Marital Status, Financial Status, Traits and Skills +2 level. These requirements block out anyone who doesn't meet the requirements from joining the club.

When the Sim leader creates a Club, they can choose when and where Club members should go to hangout and do Club activities such as gathering around a Bonfire or go Swimming in a Natural Pond.
While having a Gathering club members will wander around and do activities that are set for the club, and club members will chat with other club members, but mostly stay close to each other.
There's a secret lot in Windenburg which players can use to create a special location for their Sims' Club Hangout. This is where all the Sims in the Club will hangout in their spare time.
When creating a club or a Sim is leader of the club, the player can choose where the Club hangout is. This is the place where Sims within the club will go to during gatherings. Players can select a lot for Club Hangouts in three ways: selecting none will make all Club members come to the lot the Leader is on, selecting a Specific location allows for the Player to select any lot from any world as their hangout, and finally General Venues allows for the Player to make the Club Hangout at any Spa, any Gym, any Bar, any Park etc.
When a Sim has joined a club, the player can open the Club panel and see a panel showcasing their club's name, options, club members, club encouraged activities and banned activities.
Each Sim can join up to 3 Clubs, and each Sim can join different clubs to other Sims in their household.
Sims can start a gathering at any time, anywhere and for as long as they want. Players can also create the Club Members outfits and purchase new Club Perks with Club points.
When a Sim is gathering at a Club, every Sim that does the activities the club prefers will gain Club points as long as the Gathering is happening. With these Club points Players can purchase new club perks which can help do many things such as give a certain mood to all members while gathering, make the club hated or loved on first meeting, purchase new unique handshakes, boost skills etc.
