With summer preparations well under way amongst the first-team squad, the 2011-12 National League fixtures have been released.

The season opens in September with 2 pre-season friendlies at the Bonus Arena before the Wasps open their league campaign with a home clash against newcomers Oldham Titans.

The Wasps have first round byes in both the National Cup and National Shield competitions due to their drawn opponents withdrawing from the competition after both draws had been made.

That means that the Wasps will face either Division 2 Team Northumbria or fellow Division 4 side, Middlesbrough Lions in Round 2 of the National Cup. The Wasps could potentially face Middlesbrough Lions 3 times in the space of 2 weeks with a National Shield Round 2 home draw to face either them or Tees Valley Mohawks II.

For the fourth consecutive season, the Wasps will be fortunate to end their season at home, this time to Newcastle Eagles II on Saturday 17 March 2012.
