So, got this with some older magic items from the 70's. Cannot seem to recall what it is (if I ever knew).....
Thanks,

I have seen a lot of magic in my time and that one is completely alien.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

That does not look like a paddle trick per se. It is a skill game. much like Balero (barrel on stick) or hoop/ring on stick

One version:

or Cup the Ball game

A simple to make version but difficult to do, using a ring and pointed stick can be seen at (this will download a small PDF file showing you how to make and use the toy). :

Yours is a version where the ring is placed in the well and then tossed to be caught on the tip. It looks to be one of the more difficult pieces.
