* Mrs Hyams will check for health and safety hazards before allowing us to play a match * Mrs Hyams teaches young people and has a lot of patience Comparison The national England Netball coach Lesley Dixon does not have to organise matches or transport because the league it self sorts them details out. Mrs Hyams on the other hand has to contact other local teams and sort out matches and tournaments, and means of transport for hers players, which can be stressful and time consuming.
