Sports - Tennis +tennissen


In English you say ” I’m playing tennis”

So the verb is: playing

In Dutch most of the sports you can treat as a verb:

-Tennissen    -Voetballen    -Hockeyen   -Basketballen

So you say: 
Ik tennis
Ik voetbal
Ik hockey
Ik basketbal

When you want to stress your a member of a club, you can say:
Ik zit op tennis
Ik zit op voetbal
Ik zit op hockey

Literally translated: I sit on …

So tell me … which sport do you do? Welke sport doe jij?
