Team Derby start the defence of their National Badminton League title against Surrey Smashers as part of the 2015/16 fixtures.
The NBL returns for a second season this November and a number of fixtures will be shown live on Sky Sports, with six teams competing in a series of six Monday evening match-nights running through to March 21.
Surrey, last season’s table toppers, have been handed an opening fixture against MK Badminton at Surrey Sports Park on November 2.
Match-night one also serves up an immediate return to action for 2014/15 runners-up Loughborough Sport as they take on the University of Nottingham.
Team Derby will have to wait until match-night two to get their campaign underway as they host the Smashers on November 30, while Birmingham Lions start the season against the University of Nottingham on the same evening.
This season’s Championships Finals Day is scheduled to be held on May 8.
