What Is a Zone Defence 

Looking For A Basketball Play? Or Anything Else? 

A zone defence is when your players will guard a specific area on the court. There are many different zone defences in Basketball which are 2-3, 3-2, 2-1-2 and 1-3-1 and all of these work against different types of offences and work with different teams defensively. A good zone defence will look like a man to man defence, hover this is a very rare case.

There are also man to man zone defence's which have an aspect of a man to man defence. For example a box and one. There are also Match up Zone Defences which can be a 2-3 zone for example which would have each player in the zone guarding a player in their personal zone.
