Rosters[edit]

Each team could have up to eight members. Four were selected for each match.

Results[edit]

Round 1[edit]

The top two teams in each pool advanced. Each team played each other team in its pool, unless a match was unnecessary as it would not alter qualification. Each team match included 16 bouts: four fencers from one team faced four fencers from the other team once apiece. Bouts were to five touches.
