Matches are competed between two teams of eight players. Teams hit the rings in pairs and hit 3 sets of 4 rings each down the 20m court, through a 2 metre wide goal. They then do the same again from the other end of the court, making a maximum total of 192 goals possible. The team that score the most goals wins the match. The Victorian Trugo Association also hosts singles, doubles and fours competitions.
