LocationFloraliën, Middelheimpark, Antwerpen
Participants72 from 11 countries

Each nation was allowed one team entry of four starting competitors plus four substitutes. Bouts were for one touch with double touches counting as double losses. The format was two rounds of pools. In the final, the placements had already been determined by the time of the Italy-USA match. Since it would not make any difference which team won, they agreed to have Nedo Nadi fence one touch with Arthur Lyon and have the match victory determined by that one bout.

Italy won the épée team gold medal but it was fortunate to advance to the final. In round one, Italy did not win its pool, tieing for second with Portugal, barely ahead of the 4th placed Netherlands, which failed to advance. At the 1919 Inter-Allied Games the final standings were 1) France, 2) Portugal, and =3) Belgium and Romania. At Antwerp, the Italian team was awarded possession of the Challenge Prize that had been donated by The English Fencers.
