Trugo or TruGo is a game which was invented in the railway repairs workshops in Melbourne, Australia. The aim of the game is to score points by striking a rubber ring, which is called a whell, with a mallet through goal posts.
Trugo is usually played outdoors in lawns, 90 feet in length for men, and 70 feet in length for women. 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.
- Lawn Bowls — the objective is to roll biased balls so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a "jack" or "kitty".
- Croquet — hit plastic or wooden balls using a mallet through hoops.
- Gateball — a team sport played with a wooden mallet and wooden balls. Each player attempts to strike their allocated ball through all the gates and finally strike the goal pole.
