Are there any differences between "faire + de" and "jouer + à" in saying "playing a kind of sport" ?

Bonjour, We use "faire du / de la / de l'" with sports in general (tennis, danse, natation, foot, escrime, etc.) We use " jouer au / à la / à l' / aux with sports that can also be considerated as games: all sports you play with balls for example (foot, basket, handball, tennis, badminton, rugby, golf,...) and also games that are not sports (échecs, cartes, jeux vidéos, dominos, légos, poupée, etc.) But we can't say "jouer " with all sports.
