    Lightbulb Footscray trugo club to reopen

    We have a sport here in the western suburbs that isn't played many in other places called trugo. A few years ago the sport was losing popularity and they closed the Footscray trugo club. But the club has recently reopened and they are looking for members:

    I'm going to head down and join up myself. If anyone else is interested then see you there.

    And enjoying a return to popularity in the district. It's good to see because there is no game in the world quite like it.

    I can see some hipster bashings resulting from this.

    We don't need trugo to slap some bearded Herbert around. Although the mallets would save your hands from getting wet.

    Re: Footscray trugo cluck to reopen

    The Trugo club (or cluck as TD seems to like to call it!) in Yarraville is still open, although it mostly seems to host kids birthday parties. I've seen them playing on occasion and often they have someone standing in the park asking people walking past if they want to come in and play.

    I know where you mean, near the SD School, there is another at Yarraville Gardens. I think there is one closer to Stoney Creek too.

    I've a sneaking suspicion that is the Footscray Trugo club in Footscray, not Yarraville. And yes, that may well be me...
