Mary: It’s going to be sunny and warm this weekend. Let’s do something outside on Saturday.
Bob: Sure. Let’s play tennis! I bought a new tennis racket last week, and I really want to try it out.
Mary: I don’t really like tennis. Let’s play basketball instead. There’s a court by my house.
Bob: That sounds like fun. Will there be enough people to form two teams?
Mary: I think so. Usually on nice weekends, a lot of people play basketball there.
Bob: Great! Let’s do that on Saturday.

Let’s is the contracted form of “let us.” “Let’s” plus a verb is a way of suggesting doing something together.
A tennis racket is a piece of sports equipment used to hit a ball in tennis.
To try something out means to use something for the first time.
Basketball is a game played by two teams. The teams try to score points by throwing a ball through a net located above each end of the court. A basketball is also the name for the ball used in the game.
