Defending Men’s Super League champions Belfast Star begin with a trip to Dublin to take on UCD Marian on Saturday 17th October. On the same day Women’s Super League champions DCU Mercy start their season at newly promoted Trinity Meteors, who won the Division One title last season.

There are four new clubs competing in Men’s Division 1, Grand Hotel Malahide host against Sligo All-Stars on their debut, while Killarney Cougars travel to local rivals Scott’s Lakers St. Paul’s Killarney. Titans Basketball Club, who return to the National League after a year’s absence, are away at LYIT Donegal.

Drogheda Wolves wait until Sunday (18th October) to make their debut, with a home tie Ulster University.

There are two new teams in the Women’s Division 1 - LYIT Donegal make their debut against Phoenix Rockets, while St. Paul’s Killarney, who are competing in the National League for the first time since 2012, return with a home fixture against Tipperary Knights.
