Están jugando a saltar a la soga.

Hola, mi amigos...

In the following sentence (below), why is there an "a" before the infinitive "saltar"? The infinitive already has "to" in it, as in "to jump." Is that not redundant? Or, does the "a" mean something else here?

Están jugando a saltar a la soga.

Thank you all
