    Default What sports do you do?

    Hello
    I understand that depending on the sport one has to use a different verb. Examples:
    1 - I play football
    2 - I go swimming
    3 - I do Yoga

    Now, what if I want to ask a person about the sport he or she prefers? Would it be all right if I asked ' What sport do you do?' Especially because I do not know whether it is football or swimming or Yoga so I do not know what verb to use here.

    Thank you

    I would start with "What sport(s) do you play/do?" and let the responder reply with an appropriate answer as in your/my examples.
