Playing IPOs with Python?

I’m trying to make a pinball-like game for the fun of it but, I’m not sure how to get the paddles to move, using python…I’ve animated a 10 frame sequence for the paddles but I’m not sure how to play the IPO.
Could someone please help me out with this? I’d greatly appreciate any help

I think python is not even needed. You define the Action for the paddle, and then hook it up to a controller in the GE. When that controller is trigged, like the z or / keys are pressed, the action is played.
