The land around the Sports Club building was originally donated by local landowner/farmer, Randolph Pearson in the 1930s for his workers to use as a cricket pitch. Cricket was played at the site until the mid 1970s when the club disbanded.
The Bowls Club, which at the time was located behind the village hall, relocated to the site and laid what has become one of the best bowling greens in Warwickshire. The Bowls Club was the sole occupant for the next 25 years until Snitterfield Tennis Club was formed in 2000. In 2003, Snitterfield Cricket Club and Snitterfield Junior Football Club were also formed, both clubs playing over the Wolverton road on the village playing field. The four clubs amalgamated to form Snitterfield Sports Club in 2004. The driving force behind this was Chris Gallimore, who at the time was chairman of the Tennis Club.
The tennis club has 2 mens’ teams, 3 women’s team and 2 mixed teams which play in the Stratford Upon Avon winter & summer tennis leagues. The Bowls Club has upgraded and improved their bowling green over the years, it often hosts county games. Junior Football has grown and in recent times had as many as 6 teams. The Cricket Club plays 40 over games on Sundays & 20 over games on Wednesdays. In 2013 they secured funds to lay a full length artificial wicket, which helps with coaching juniors and catching up on games lost to bad weather.
In addition to the four sports mentioned above the Club also provides table tennis, snooker & pool. Within the Sports Club Building there is The Snipe Bar with both SKY & BT Sports.
The Sports Club has full time Club Stewards, Claire & Lee Niblett.
There is a function room next to the bar, with a bowling alley and this room is available to outside parties to hire.
