Each pool was a round-robin. Bouts were to five touches, and each fencer from one nation had a bout against each from the opponent. The nation which won the most individual bouts took the team bout (with total touches as the tie-breaker if the teams split 8-8). The top two nations in each pool advanced to the second round.

Semifinals[edit]

Each pool was a round-robin. Bouts were to five touches, and each fencer from one nation had a bout against each from the opponent. The nation which won the most individual bouts took the team bout (with total touches as the tie-breaker if the teams split 8-8). The top two nations in each pool advanced to the final. In the first pool, the United States lost the first two matches making the match between France and Italy unnecessary as both would advance regardless of the result. Similarly, Hungary lost both the first two matches of the second pool, so the third match (between Argentina and Belgium) was unnecessary.

Pool A
Rank Nation Wins Qual.
1 France 1 Q
Italy 1 Q
3 United States 0
Pool B
