Apart from a world class golf course, a football ground and a rugby stadium being within the village, Hurworth not only hosts the Middlesbrough FC training ground but also has excellent amateur sports teams and facilities. A most recent addition to the village is the Hurworth and Croft sports association, who have acquired the use of the old "Prep" field from the Priory group and are currently converting it into football pitches for the Hurworth Albion team and also for young children in the village who would like to take up football. They have plans to add other sports, fundays and fundraising activities to their calendar over the summer.
