If you swim regularly but not with a club would you use faire or jouer?

I find it difficult to understand how, without context, you decide whether to use faire de or jouer à + sport?

Bonjour Jennifer, Tu fais de la natation. You swim (regularly / in a club). I get the sense here that swimming regularly, faire de la natation, is applicable to your question. That is certainly not a one-off scenario since it is done regularly, i.e. daily, weekly, etc. Bonne chance.

Bonjour Jennifer !

As Ron said, you can use faire de la natation to express swimming regularly.

You can never use jouer, but you can also simply use nager though it won't imply a "club" activity :)

Bonne journée !
