Trugo or TruGo is a game which originated in Melbourne, Australia. This sport was invented in the railway repairs workshops in Melbourne. Trugo is usually played outdoors in lawns, 90 feet in length for men, and 70 feet in length for women.

The goal of the game is to score points by striking a rubber ring, which is called a whell, with a mallet through goal posts. The players stand on a rubber mat and face away from the goals.

The mallet is then swung between the legs to strike the rubber ring, or a wheel. After the first player has struck four wheels, the players then swap roles. Each of the players have 24 shots, 12 from both ends.
