In brief: Yes!
One of the reasons sports is not encouraged by many obstetricians during pregnancy is the risk of injury or trauma to you and your growing belly! as long as you are careful and play with people who won't foul you or play too rough, it is ok.
150 minutes of moderate physical exertion a week is recommended!
