RMIT Redbacks

The RMIT Redbacks are the sport collective of RMIT. All of our national and social sports teams are called the Redbacks – there's a Redbacks basketball team, Redbacks tennis players and even Rupert and Ruby, our eight-legged Redback spider mascots! If you're part of the RMIT sport community – as a player or a fan – you're a Redback too!
