Grove rugby union and association football clubs play at the Cane Lane parish recreation ground on the outskirts of the village.

  • Grove Rugby Football Club was founded in 1971 and plays in the Southern League North division, making it one of the four highest-rated sides in Oxfordshire. The Club fields four senior sides, including Veterans. Grove RFC has a large Youth section, across twelve Mini (mixed, Under-7 to Under-12) and Junior groups (Under-13 to Under-18; including two Girls' -- Under 15 and Under 18), consistently has among the best Colts sides in the area, and has long had a policy of bringing through players from the Colts to the senior sides. The Club welcomes and actively seeks new recruits across its Mini, Junior and Senior sides. It also has a full and varied social calendar. One of its highest achieving alumni is Jon Dunbar, who captained Grove in the early-2000s before moving to Newcastle Falcons and then Leeds Carnegie on a professional contract. He later represented Scotland in the 2005 Six Nations Championship, playing in two games as a substitute.
  • Grove Challengers FC, the local association football junior side, was founded in 1971 and has seen many of its alumni enter the professional game. Though few make it further than the youth teams of local clubs, such as Oxford United and Wycombe Wanderers, Challengers most successful alumnus is former England International Martin Keown, who played for the club briefly as a young child.

Letcombe Brook runs through Grove.

The village has been twinned with Mably, France since 1990.
