The men's team sabre was one of seven fencing events on the fencing at the 1932 Summer Olympics programme. It was the sixth appearance of the event. The competition was held from 10 August 1932 to 11 August 1932. 32 fencers from six nations competed.[1] Each team could have a maximum of six fencers, with four participating in any given match.[2] France and Cuba entered, but withdrew before competition.[3]

The competition format continued the pool play round-robin from prior years.[3] Each of the four fencers from one team would face each of the four from the other, for a total of 16 bouts per match (with bouts unnecessary to determining the match winner sometimes not being played). The team that won more bouts won the match. Matches not necessary to determining qualification were not played.



Round 1[edit]

The top two teams in each pool advanced to the final. Cuba and France both withdrew, leaving the first pool with only two teams--automatically advancing both.[3]
