Though I agree with Cane those with strong drive are born with it.
How old is the dog?If he is young he may just need some time. It could also be a confidence issue with some.
Building drive to play can be done by getting the dog interested in toys to start with and then whatever tug you will be using on the spring pole. Flirt poles also may help you out. You have to make the toys seem run have them chase things get the toy itself animated by you swinging and playing with it. With a low drive dog you can't just put something put and expect them to play.
Test out different toys, some prefer to play ball others tug. Not all dogs will enjoy the springpole.
Also do not leave the toys out all the time take them out play and put them away. You don't want the dog playing until he losses interest once you get him focuses enough to play. Always end on a fun high note so to speak.
If it is purely a confidence issue doing obedience and developing a stronger bond with the dog can also be a huge help.
I honestly have never had to deal with one of my own not wanting to play but have help some others with it.
Enjoy and don't get frustrated....
