Helmdon Sports and Social Club, which has been in existence since 1969 was formed from the cricket team and the football team (previously quite independent of each other). The cricket team used to play on a field on the far side of the railway line bank at the end of Grange Lane.

The present sports field with its small pavilion up the Wappenham Road is outside the perimeter of the village, about a quarter of a mile on the left-hand side. It was originally rented from the Gulliver family and then bought by the Sports Club with the help of a loan. When the loan was called in, South Northants Council agreed to buy the field and rent it out to the Sports Club.
The club holds fund raising events throughout the year such as golf days and race nights in an effort to improve the facilities for all groups that use the ground during the year.
