In American English you can "play sports". A typical mistake Spanish speakers make is using the verb practise for sports: *I love practising sport. This should be: I love sport. *I usually practise sport every evening. However, in American English you can use the verb practise or practice (as it is spelt there) to mean "to train": The team is practicing for tomorrow's competition. PET Reading and writing.
