you can use shapes to draw your paddles and ball. To move them, just change their left/top (thats x/y) property values.

btw - you can always look up help on though it's complicated Rolling Eyes a lot of description about nothing Laughing

object.move x,y

To make the center of the object where the cursor is you could put:

object.move x - (object.width / 2) , y - (object.height / 2)
