Slogan: 'A unique local 'industrial' game of Melbourne, Australia'
Bio: The Victorian Trugo Association invites you to be part of history and play a game of Trugo today.

This unique local sport of Melbourne is played in the suburbs of Ascot Vale, Brunswick, Footscray, Port Melbourne, Sandridge, South Melbourne and at the home of Trugo, Yarraville.

Trugo is a 'true blue Melbourne Aussie game' played on a grass court by hitting rubber rings with a wooden mallet from one end of the green to goal posts at the other.

It is like a cross between croquet, wood chopping, lawn bowls and AFL football.
*Croquet - because of the wooden mallet used.
*Wood chopping - because of the hitting action.
*Lawn bowls - because it is played on a grass green.
*AFL football - because you have to hit the rubber ring through goal posts.
