It is believed a number of slogans were sprayed onto the entrance and the walls of McQuillan GAC in the Whitepark Road area shortly after midnight on Tuesday.
Sinn Féin councillor, Cara McShane, has condemned the attack and urged anyone with information to contact police or club officials.
"In recent days there has been a heightening of tensions in this area which has served no purpose whatsoever other than to witness senseless acts of vandalism taking place on people's places of worship and cultural centres," she said.
"The club in Ballycastle has a long history of attracting cross-community support and participation in Gaelic games."
She added: "I would also urge that people do not react to this. Positive leadership must be shown by all community and political representatives to ensure that we will not be dragged down a sectarian or anti-social cul-de-sac."
Police are working to establish a motive for the incident.
"CCTV footage is being examined by officers and enquiries are ongoing," a police spokesperson said.
"Police would ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone with any information about this incident to contact them at Ballycastle on the non-emergency number 101.
"Information can also be passed anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
