    Cool way

    Hello!

    Is this sentence grammatically correct, please? :

    "The best way to spend a weekend is doing sport."

    Thank you

    Cool Re: way

    Thank you.

    Could we also use the infinitive form?:

    "The best way to spend a weekend is to do sport."


    Thanks a lot.

    There is nothing wrong with it grammatically but I don't think it's as natural.

    In AmE and more particularly in the U.S. you would more likely hear/read, "The best way to spend a weekend is by playing sports (or by playing a sport)".
