    Well, you have to do collision detection. Lets take the following ascii picture:


    (ball)(direction)

    * --->


    Just split the vector in it's x and y components

    and do a check in both direction, and also the original direction, if you detect a paddle, then

    just bounce in the opposite direction, or something.....
