As always, Hungary was favored for the sabre team gold medal. They were the defending champions and had won the 1930 and 1931 World Championships. There were eight teams entered but when France and Cuba withdrew, Italy and the United States automatically advanced to the final from the first pool, which was not contested. Hungary and Poland advanced from pool two. The final was a virtual walkover for Hungary, which won all three matches and 31 of 37 bouts to defend their gold medal. Hungary would win the gold medal in this event at every Olympics through 1960 and would eventually win 46 consecutive team matches before that was stopped by Italy at the 1964 Olympics.

Italy won the silver medal rather easily, while Poland took the bronze, narrowly besting the United States in their match, tying in bouts won 8-8, with Italy winning on touches.
