The cosmic web is a broad concept which contains the gravity, stretched gasses and the dark matter between galaxies. No matter which component of the cosmic web we choose, galaxies must be in clusters to interact with each other. When these interactions between galaxies are modeled only by gravity, a type of weighted network emerges based on the gravitational attraction between them. In such weighted networks, galaxies become nodes whereas the attractions between them constitute the edges. In this study, a weighted network model for local galaxy clusters has been examined. In such a relevant network model, it has been shown that how to set up edges and their strengths. According to the obtained results, it has been found out that there are correlations between network metrics and galactic properties such as mass.
