"Play" "Do" and "Go"


Remember that we use play for games (like chess or PS3) and for sports that use a ball. 
“I play baseball every Sunday afternoon.”  “Will you play tennis tomorrow after work?” "I like to play poker online."



BUT We don’t use play for sports that don’t use a ball. We use the verb do. "I do Kendo after school on Wednesdays." (not I play Kendo...)






AND we don't use play with sports or activities that end with ing. We use the verb go.
"This weekend I plan to go snowboarding." (not I play snowboarding...) "My friends and I love to go bowling." "I'm bored... Lets go shopping!"

What do you like to play? What sports do you do? Do you ever go swimming?
