I don't know if calling them elitist is correct though. They are open to anyone to play if the desire to do so is there.

Great bloke, I have played against him. His team hammered us and he then took our injured players back to his place and stitched them up, whilst they drank champagne. He also helps his wife run one of the biggest animal sanctuaries in the country.
