Weekly social sport

Get active and have fun with social basketball, netball, volleyball, street cricket, frisbee and more, every week Monday to Thursday.

Social sport operates Monday to Thursday afternoons throughout semester at City campus on A'Beckett St courts. Each session features a different sport, so be sure to check out the schedule below for your favourite. Sessions are designed to allow students to drop in at any time. 

Social sport is all about having fun and meeting people, no prior knowledge or skill is required and anyone from the RMIT community is welcome to join in.


A'Beckett St City Courts, A’Beckett St and, Stewart St, Melbourne (behind Building 80).


When: Mondays 2-3pm

What: Hockey without the bulky equipment and dangerous ball! Plastic sticks and ball make for a super fun game that anyone can play. 


When: Mondays 3-5pm

What: An Australian favourite that is similar to basketball but better suited to mixed play. It also allows for those who aren't keen to run so much to choose positions that limit their movement.  


When: Tuesdays 2-3pm

What: Playing basketball on our spectacular city courts must be on everyone's bucket list! Depending on the vibe of the group this might be a 3vs3 or half court social game. 

Street cricket

When: Tuesdays 3-5pm

What: A favourite amongst our international students and a perfect way to spend a summer afternoon meeting new people. 


When: Wednesdays 2-3pm

What: Nothing beats the group laughter after an epic volleyball rally! Ideal for those not dressed for sport, or those wanting to drop in, play a few points and then had back to class.  


When: Wednesdays 3-5pm

What: Futsal on our iconic city courts is another experience for your bucket list. The diversity of our student population makes for some spirited competition!

Australian Rules Football (AFL) – Kick to kick

When: Thursdays 2-3pm

What: While the competition version of AFL can be high contact, kick to kick is a school yard favourite. Utilise our court space in the middle of the City to kick with a friend for the quintessential Australian experience.


When: Thursdays 3-4pm

What: Is there a better way to make friends than by teaming up with some new pals to eliminate the opposition from the court? Soft foam balls ensure a good time is had by all. 


When: Thursdays 4-5pm

What: Depending on the vibe of the group on the day, this might be a relaxed throw or a modified game.
