    go to play football

    Hello!

    We ususally say 'go skiing, go bowling, etc. but should I say 'Let's go to play football' or 'Let's go playing football'?

    Could someone help me with this?Thanks a lot!

    Re: go to play football

    I agree with Mike.

    Also 'Let's go and play football'.

    Re: go to play football

    We can go verb+ing or we can play (name of a) game, but we don't go playing anything.
