Is this sentence correct?
'Let's go play' or should it be 'Let's go playing' ?( I think the former one is right ,but I am not sure).
Let's go service him or Let's go servicing him

The only time this would work would be where the -ing construction is commonly viewed as a noun in its own right.
Let's go shopping.
Let's go skiing.
Let's go ice-skating.
Let's go bungee-jumping.
Let's go roller-blading.
I can't actually think of any more. The general construction with "Let's go" would be "and + bare infinitive".
Let's go and play.
Let's go and make cookies.
Let's go and cause trouble.
Let's go and see our friends.
Let's go and watch a movie. (AmE)
Let's go and see a film. (BrE)
Let's go and listen to some music in the park.
What about this sentence ?
Let's go and grab something to eat or Let's go and grab something and eat
The second one is a verb "to grab", then a noun "something", then another verb "to eat". The "something" isn't specified so it's not clear that it's food.
Thank you for replying. One last thing : would it be correct to say ' You'll try and send it to her ?!' instead of 'You'll try to send it to her ?!'
Yes , it would be a question.
In that case, you could say either "You'll try and send it to her?" or "You'll try to send it to her?"
Both would be understood.
