Is it correct to say "play sports"? And what other terms or expressions used to say I practice sports?

    For example, when someone meets a person for the first time and asks him: What do you do in your free time? He answers : "I play sports" is that correct?

    Concerning the second part of my question is there other terms to use for "playing sports"?

    Again, you would probably talk about specific sports. Some sports have naturally collocating verbs: I go running. I ride horses. I race motorbikes.

    But 'I play X' is the most natural and common way to talk about most sports.
