Yaxley has a Non-League football club Yaxley F.C., which play at Leading Drove. Yaxley also has a number of Rugby League players who play with Cambridge Lions in Cambridge. Denmark's Speedway World Cup winning captain Niels-Kristian Iversen is the village's most famous sporting resident.
Cambridgeshire County Council has proposed a cycleway to be built in Yaxley, as per its 1999 Transport Plan. The scheme's original development will be contained within Yaxley, though it is planned to expand it in two phases following the completion of the Yaxley section; phase 2 will run along Broadway to Farcet, phase 3 will run from where Daimler Avenue meets Broadway to the A15.
