Faire de V jouer à - water polo

Hi Kwiziq

When trying to answer the waterpolo query, my study notes indicated most of the time “jouer à” was used for team sports; plus if a ball is used, also “jouer à”.

I therefore used jouer, and it was marked wrong and I was supposed to use “faire de”.  

Any comments on how you can help us to remember/learn this topic?  

Thank you in anticipation.

Bonjour Jo,

I checked this test question and we accept both answers with"jouer à" and "faire de". Perhaps, you forgot or mispelled "au" when writing your answer with "jouer" ? This is an important part of the response too.

Je joue au waterpolo. / Je fais du waterpolo. = I play waterpolo.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
