Great Britain, as hosts, were allowed to enter a team in any event they chose. They entered a team in this competition, and fenced against the 8th-seeded Egyptian team, with the winning team joining the seven other teams in the main quarter-final draw. Quarter-final losers continued fencing to determine ranking spots for fifth through eighth, while the quarter-final winners met in the semi-finals.
