The Girls of Paintball - Alicia Turner of London Notorious...

Do girls play paintball? They sure do. And many of them play for some of the best teams in the world. Alicia Turner is a young 21 year old who lives across the pond and competes in the Millennium Series with the Division 1 team London Notorious (also known as the Notorious Kidz). This is the second in a series (The first can be seen here) covering The Girls of Paintball interviews.

Hi Alicia. The basic question first - How and when did you get started in paintball?

I started playing rec ball with my brother when I was about 17.

You live in the United Kingdom. Have you been to the states to play? If so is there a noticeable difference between players and style?

I've never played in the states, but we have allot of American players in the Millennium series. There is a difference in style of play, you guys play more aggressive but I think we're going to be up there with you this season.

Tell us about your team.

My team is called London Notorious, and we play in the SPL league of the Millennium Series, we practice at Dartford Sevens. www. d7s. co. uk.

What position do you play on the team?

Anywhere, usually T-bag side. (At this point I had to write back and ask Alicia what a T-Bag is. Anyone want to take a guess? Keep it clean!)

Do you get any time for rec ball?

Unfortunately, I don't really have time for it anymore because of practice.

What would you say to girls who might be thinking about playing paintball?

Uh, I'd say, just go for it, dive around, get dirty, get covered in bruises and cuts. It'll only make you a better player. Also, ask the boys for help. I think it's better to play the way a guy plays, you get more respect.

I always ask the last person I interview what they would like to ask the next person I interview. Audrey Eckroth of the Femmes Fatale asks, “Who did you get coaching from?”

Our owner, Dave, is also our coach. He gets us doing fitness and drills etc every weekend. If not Dave, then we have Nexus or Shock (CPL teams) helping us out at practices.
And what would you like me to ask the next person I interview?

How easy did they find it coming through the ranks of a male orientated sport?

Thank you Alicia.
