The modal "used to + verb" is used for an repetitive or habitual action in the past. It doesn't continue in in the present time as indicated by: "but I don't anymore" or "but not anymore."

The question form looks like this:

(?) Did you use to play a lot of tennis at 16?
(-) No, I didn't use to play tennis.
(+) Yes, I used to play tennis, but I don't anymore.

If the action continues in the present time, you use the word "still".

(+)I used to play tennis a lot, but I stopped. Come to think of it, I still play from time to time.
