The programme kicks off on the weekend of 22/23 September, featuring women's Division 3 at Liverpool - games against Liverpool Water Beatles and Sunderland for newcomers Rotherham Metro - and men's 5 at Haberdashers, where the League's other new entrants, the British Army, take on Invicta Marlins and Bedford.
It's not until 6/7 October that the women's top division makes a start at Lancaster Salt Ayre. Champions Otter face a tough opener, against familiar rivals City of Manchester.
Men's Division 1 begins on 13/14 October at Ponds Forge, Sheffield. Champions Solihull open up with a match against Durham Palatinates (formerly Team Northumbria).
