Zoning as contraints in net barrier games

Guided by the constraints-led approach, one of the 4 environment design principles is "constrain to afford". It is essentially the idea of manipulating constraints to present opportunities for action. When teaching net-barrier games and territorial invasion games, it not uncommon to hear and see teachers utilise the idea of "zoning" to design their learning activities. But instead of utilising "zoning" as a way to simplify activities, could we utilise the idea of zoning, coupled with differentiated scoring to focus on encouraging and inviting a set of desired behaviours instead?

Attached here are just some simple ideas that you can utilise right away or adapt in the teaching of net-barrier games that resemble badminton.
