    In addition to.....also

    Is this sentence correct? I form it just to know if I should use 'also' when there's already "in addition to". I feel that 'also' is unnecessary. What is correct?

    In addition to playing soccer, he (also) plays tennis and golf.

    Can the sentence be correct without using also?

    Thank you!
