Is it possible for our couples group to have a tournament on BBO?

Hi. Our couples group plays a really jank game on BBO where we play in the main bridge club but host 2 tables of private games and compare our MPs to declare a winner. The problem is we aren't playing the same hands so it's not fair to compare the scores. Is there a way for a normal user to set up a private tournament of some sort that we could directly compete on the same hands with only people in our couples group?

From the main BBO screen, "competitive", then "team matches", then the "Create Team Match" button.

There are three screens then, one for description, one for options (number of boards, form of scoring, kibitzer options), and the last for listing the team members. Note that "team 1" should be the people who will be playing N/S at table 1, and E/W at table 2. Make sure you type in user names correctly.

Also note that for individuals, you can issue a "group challenge" and have everyone play the same eight or whatever boards. Competitive, Challenges, Group Challenge.

I have a YouTube video showing how to set up a BBO team match at https://www.youtube....h?v=g18MNLvdggE

I don't work for BBO and any advice is based on my BBO experience over the decades
